Hello Autumn

Now it’s time for fires pits
And oh the s’mores
I pray we savor each moment
While welcoming more

The word season in the bible is mo’ed and literally means appointed time, appointment, or due time, or at the right time.

Leviticus 26:3-4 if you follow My decrees and are careful to obey My commands, I will send you rain in its season, and the ground will yield its crops and the trees of the field their fruit.

What is God watering with all this rain? I believe we should get ready, ready, ready.

Hello Autumn you have arrived
Summer season is over
No more temperatures
Serving us leftovers

No not today
It feels like Fall
The temperatures brisk
A welcome call

What a beautiful morning
A brisk cool day
Welcome autumn temperature’s
I hope you’re here to stay

Ready for cooler weather
We needed some relief
How about north winds
And sweaters beneath

Jackets and long sleeves
With button down cardigans
Ready for this change
Fall temperatures to start again

Then will we long
for Summer days
And wish while we wonder
Why couldn’t they stay

I think we can realize
And fully understand
Perhaps God is teaching us
to change and to comprehend

Learning to accept and truly enjoy
Exactly What we are given
Because without change
We cannot embrace living

Beauty in panoramic view
Seasons with Him to share
Some days cold some cuddly
But for now Fall in the air

When will we learn
To appreciate and be content
With what He has given us
And never relent

Oh I see a pattern
That often starts
If complaining becomes
a habitual part

I love every season
And relish the times
Spent in awe
With God’s marvelous mind

How does it appear
To Heaven above
Is it like comfort and quilts
And homemade love

Or is it sunny and alive
With beaches overflowing
While enjoying the heat
Tanned bodies glowing

Is it gathering with families
And enjoying the richness
Leaving behind all conflict
And accepting the glitches

That comes with life
And all these changes
As The Lord teaches us
Acceptance in seasons He rearranges

Seasonal changes
Oh the beauty they add
With a day like today
Just makes my heart glad

Seasonal changes at their best
So as for me and my mood
I’m going to savor each season
And embrace each attitude

From rich to robust
To brisk and breezy
To snow in winter
Pray we don’t get sneezy

Yes change is apparent
And change is good
So thank you Lord
For supplying the wood

Now it’s time for fires pits
And oh the s’mores
I pray we savor each moment
While welcoming more
