It’s that time of year. Yesterday I almost tweeted, “Doomsday has arrived, I had to get the scraper out of the trunk and use it this morning” For my southern friends, that means I had to scrap my car windows because of frost. The cool fall weather has definitely creeped up quickly. While fall is definitely my favorite season, it seems to fly by. I relish in the chai tea, tall boots, warm cider and my north face as long as I can. Yet I am starting to realize my fingers are frozen at the end of sessions and sooner than I might like the (oh please dont’ say it) snow will be here.
So before it becomes unbearable I challenge you to get outside with a warm drink and cuddle underneath a blanket with your loved ones. Make a fort with your lil’ ones. Take a long walk and breath in this air. Physically put into action keeping each other warm and also I challenge you to warm your hearts. Let others love you. Choose to love others even when its hard. Even when that car cuts in front of you, choose to clothe yourself with compassion like we are called to do in Colossians 3:12-14. Choose a fuzzy blanket instead of crabbiness. Because sooner than you know it it will be a different season, outside and in your life.
