Spiritual Journey First Thursday - Returning to Fall

Welcome to Spiritual Journey First Thursday,
a group of friends who blog monthly about our spiritual journeys. 
Pat, our host at Writer on a Horsehas chosen things
we can't wait to return to as our focus for this month.

I love all the seasons of the year. Each one fills me with joy and makes me think of these words from Psalms 118:24:  "This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it." Each season brings us reasons to rejoice. I am blessed to live in an area where we have four distinct seasons. I delight in the turning of each season, but fall is my absolute favorite. Thanks to Pat for the encouragement to think about some of the things I can't wait to return to when summer turns to fall. . . 

Rustle of marching feet at the homecoming parade, the
Enchantment of Halloween and the aromas of Thanksgiving,
The brilliant colors of fall leaves, relaxing
Under a cozy blanket with a book & hot chocolate on
Rainy gray days, and a crisp
Nip in the air perfect for bundling up & swishing in the leaves.


  1. I think we embrace summer after the cold winter but then we embrace fall after the hot summer

  2. Ramona, you reminded me why I love fall so much. This year, I am traveling to Fort Lauderdale to present at the National Center for Families Learning Conference with the Wonderopolis Wonder Lead Ambassadors. I will get to feel early fall which most likely will feel like summer but I will get to experience Florida life as I visit a friend on the West coast and my cousin on the East coast. Save your poem for my fall gallery and when fall comes add photos to depict a few of the details please.
