And we can't forget that it is seasonally appropriate to drink a bunch of warm chocolately goodness this time of year. Plus you know, there's things like tall boots, leggings and lattes. What else could a girl ask for? Except maybe a kitchen filled with healthy, chocolate pumpkin muffins the size of Manhattan? Ok, maybe that's pushing it. But we can dream, right?
This month truly gives me all kinds of warm fuzziness. How about you?
My heart even gets a little giddy with the crispness of the leaves that crunch underneath my feet, even if that only happens during hours of leaf raking or bone-chilling walks outdoors.
Fall is incredible, but our God is totally amazing!So why do I forget that in the daily busyness of life? Our God is so amazing, but often in my total non-amazingness, I go through my days where it's all about me, me, me. I'm such a selfish little sinner.
I feel like I often fall short when it comes to being grateful for these simple pleasures in life. Sometimes simply because I have a schedule that is rushed. I haven't set enough time aside to reflect on all that God has given me in this life. We make choices to fill our calendars with things, and those things often rob us of the multitudes of opportunities each day to praise Him and give thanks "in ALL things."
