OCTOBER

A friend recently posted on Facebook a plea to his friends and their families to get out of the house and enjoy the season on Sunday afternoons.

I read this poem and it describes the essence of the change of seasons. Change is welcomed from the heat of the Summer and the rains and bugs. The cool nights which awaken us to cool mornings refresh us and give us a new energy. We see the marvel of leaves in new ways when they are tinted with diverse color. Worries, anxieties can be rolled aside for a moment when one takes a stroll through the fallen crunchy leaves. What fills us then is gratitude to God for the goodness in our lives.

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< 

God of all seasons, we thank you for Autumn.

We thank you

For the touch of coolness in the air that gives us a new burst of energy,

For the touch of coolness in the air that gives us a new burst of energy,

For the coloring of trees that shows the creativity of the Divine Artist, 

For the falling leaves that reveal the strength of the branches,

For the hues of fields that bring peace to our souls,

For the smiles on pumpkins that bring joy to children,

For the fall harvest which brings us gratitude for the bounty of our land,

For this change of seasons that reveals the circle of life.

God of all seasons, as you transform the earth, transform us by your Spirit. 

Amen.
