It's fall, for some that means leaves are changing and then they drop off. Temps are going down, grass is not growing nearly as fast and the golden rod is blooming. I want you to think about all that, do you see it? Come on you see it, two things happening at the same time. Grass not growing the way it did but the Golden rods are blooming. Leaves dropping off but also giving a beautiful landscape as it changes. Temps dropping off but the refreshing coolness from a long hot summer. You see it now don't you, life, our lives. There's the growing up and then the slowing down, yet in the slowing down there is the blooming of our experiences giving our lives beauty. There is the changing within these bodies but then there's the ability to slow down and enjoy life and our walk with the Lord. There's the abilities dropping off but the refreshing visions of our grand children as they too begin their journey in this life.

Titus 2:2-5 "Older men are to be sober-minded, dignified, self-controlled, sound in faith, in love, and in steadfastness. Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled."ESV It may be fall in your life but fall is the time that prepares for the winter and the hardships that come. It get's us ready for the spring, the growing and maturing and it prepares us for the summer, the hard work that is a head and the stress of this world. We who are the fall are needed today more than ever before to help those around us become what's needed for when they become the Fall.
