The romantic comedy classic You’ve Got Mail, Tom Hanks’ Joe Fox describes fall as a time when he feels the need to buy school supplies and wishes to send his online love a bouquet of sharpened pencils.
Joe, I’m with you.
Fall is my favorite time of year and September is its gatekeeper. Soon crunchy leaves and pumpkin spice will descend upon us and the holiday season will shortly follow. Every year, I look forward to the days of cool nights and over-sized sweaters. There is a newness to fall, though everything seems to be dying, a crispness in the air that silently screams of coziness and possibilities. Here are 5 other things I’m loving right now:
Remember this | Every day is a chance to change your life
Memorize this| Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are from the world, and the world listens to them. We are from God. Whoever knows God listens to us… [1 John 4:4-6a]
Learn this | Did you know that the human brain has 100,000 miles of blood vessels? That’s enough to circle Earth 4 times. So…now you know.
Watch this | With the insanity going on in Syria right now, this chilling video makes you stop and think about the world in which we live.
Do this | Entertain. Whether you host a couple of friends for lunch on a Saturday, or throw a dinner party for 12, open your heart (and your home) to those around you. Take time to be grateful for your friends and family and slow down to express appreciation for them.
