So we are still counting God’s blessings each day, asking for eyes to see His goodness all around– feeling hope rise even as Winter approaches, and joy burn steady at the center of us. And could there be a better time to do it, when the world is turning bright before our very eyes? If Summer shows us the abundance of God’s provision, then Autumn is the season that shouts His glory to the skies.
“In October, what is real is seen: even the trees burn with primeval fire for their Maker and First Love. Now is not the time to be demure in joy.
In October any wonderful unexpected thing might be possible. Joy isn’t ever in a season, but in the way we see. His Grace, His mercy, His love — saturating everything.” Ann VosKamp
