Today is a new day. Today is sabbath. I am at rest. I am at greater peace with my family and myself. I can do nothing. I feel allowed to do nothing. I love. I am aware. It is autumn. This new season is different. The crispness in the air. Finality. Things are wrapping up. Why is this peace-giving? Cozy. Intimate. It is not boastful, it is not proud. Inviting me contemplative, deep place. A deep breath. Time slows down. From rich earth tones to bright flashy hues - none try to impress. They are just saying goodbye with one final glory. This winding down, saying goodbye, signs of death - demonstrates that all will fade and fall and die and be reborn and on and on. Seed of light and life hide away for now in fertile soul. Snuggle deep into this season of divine grace. It will come. All will come, and fade, and fall and on and on.
