October renewal

The weather finally cooled down and it feels like fall. I love how October and April feel like renewal months. What gets renewed you ask?

The weather warms
Plants sprout and flower
Green becomes the theme
Glorious sunshine makes everything come back to life
God brings in spring and life buds anew in creation
We celebrate the death, burial and resurrection of the Son of God

The weather cools
Rain comes back
The sun becomes less prominent and ushers in the longer night
The north wind begins to put everything to sleep in creation
God lets His creation rest and recover as fall drops into place
We celebrate with thankful hearts all that God has provided and blessed us with

Psalm 106:1-2 NIV
Praise the LORD. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. Who can proclaim the mighty acts of the LORD or fully declare his praise?
