For every season...let there be candycorn.
I mean. It's like they read my mind...
Autumn brings to mind blessings, and for the above, trust me - I'm pretty grateful ;)
What about you? What does Harvest Season do for your soul? I've never met a person, young or old, who didn't like Fall.
Think about - Spring is pretty popular, but has naysayers because of the pollen. (achooo!) Winter is enjoyed or despised for various reasons (too cold, or some other people love the cold) Summer is controversial because kids love being out of school (and teachers too!) but a lot of people just can't stand the heat.
But Autumn? It's beloved.
I think Autumn reveals to us a lot about God. It's a season when things are reserved, calming. Leaves are changing colors and twirling to the ground. It's almost mystical. There is still color, but it's muted. The air is brisk and tangy. Some view the falling leaves as death, others as a peaceful wait period before the promises of Spring and renewal.
Are you in a rough season right now? Remember, God promises His own Spring. Whatever trials you're facing are only for a season, an appointed time until life buds forth again. Regardless of the season, God is with you. He promises that, friend.
(And I'm personal testimony to the fact that you CAN save up enough candycorn through Autumn to last well into the summer...)
