Fall is Here

Who doesn’t love the smell of apples, pumpkins, and spices? Who doesn’t love the blend of orange, amber, gold, green, and the deepest of reds? Who doesn’t love pies and Sunday football? My friends, fall is upon us! It is my favorite time of year, but ironically it is also a great metaphor for letting go and preparing your life for spring.

As you know fall is also called Autumn and while that has a beautiful ring to it, how simple yet powerful is the word “fall”? It symbolizes the falling of leaves and in Old English, the word derives from feallan which means “to fall or to die.” What else must fall right now in our lives? What leaves of pain, hurt, bitterness are we harboring and need to just let fall to the ground in order to bare our trees and prepare for new life?

This week has been one of the toughest weeks of my life and today when the cool air blew through, it reminded me that a new season it upon us and with those seasons comes change. Change is not comfortable. It feels like the dress that still doesn’t fit quite right, yet we have to put it on to remind ourselves of what we ultimately desire. Change is hard because of fear! Fear that we will not be successful at the new job or venture we are running towards. Fear that if we magnify the looking glass, we will see that our choices are not based on what is true and good, but what feels good. Fear that if I change my thinking, it will change who I am or maybe even make me weak.

But when God chooses to change the season, the world does not fight back. It understands that the falling, dying, and reviving is necessary for the story of life to continue. My shadows are roaring louder and bleeding darkness all over my picture lately, but I know that just as the season is changing, so is my life. I am being pruned and made bare, so that new life can well up and flourish. Closing the door on the chapters of our lives that have been kept a secret and held us captive is a scary, exhausting, yet enlightening experience.

  Fall brings so many lovely smells, foods, pastimes into our lives and I want to bask in each of these with joy for what is to come, not sorrow for the losses that I have experienced.

What does fall represent to you? What are your favorite things about this new season you are in?

    you added a title that makes people desire more? I mean Let

    Wow that was odd. I just wrote an incredibly
    long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up.
    Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyhow, just wanted to say great
    blog!

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew
    of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter
    updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some
    time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.

    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and
    I look forward to your new updates. AC Mailan trikot

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something that
    I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and
    extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post,
    I will try to get the hang of it! Maglia Calcio barcellona
