Breathe {inspiration for Wednesdays}

Today, I am unpacking and regrouping from my recent trip to Arizona.  While I had such a great time there, my breath was stolen away by the fall beauty that I encountered as we drove home from the airport.  How does fall happen almost overnight and paint such rich colors on our landscape?  I am always amazed!!

As the days get shorter and the weather gets colder, the rhythm of Autumn has its effect on me.  I start to think about slowing down and what sort of things, like the trees, I need to give up.  I am grateful for the abundant harvest of joy in my life and I wonder what parts of my life need to rest and lie dormant for a season.

As you enter into whatever Fall season you have, I hope that you will enjoy the picture of the falling leaves - and it will remind you that there is a season to "let go" and enjoy the brilliant colors of all that falls.

Breathe, smile and go slowly.
