Nope it's not Christmas yet! So why am I singing Christmas songs you ask? Well, its my Pastor that got it stuck in my head actually! Last night several of the youth from Church came and we all washed and waxed the Church van! While we were working on it Pastor kept singing those words and it was so funny cause he eventually had a bunch of us singing it!
I have always loved this time of year even when I was a little girl I thought there was nothing quite like it!
It makes me think back to then and how it seemed like 1 day lasted forever and summer lasted for eternity and my favorite time of year was never going to come! I remember how I knew that fall was soon around the bend when I had to start school again..now that part of fall I never did enjoy to much but I can remember several times when I would do my school work outside cause I just could not stand to be stuck in the house on such a beautiful day!
Fall reminds me of so many things..things from my childhood and new traditions in my own home! The smell of cinnamon candles that fill my whole house with sweet goodness, having a warm fire in my fireplace, watching football and eating chili!, baking home made goodies, wearing hoodies, sweaters, and toe socks! the crispness that fills the air when the wind blows, watching the leaves fall softly to the ground and seeing the mountains appear in the distance through the trees! I love how the sky is always so bright and blue and you always see the prettiest sunrises and sunsets, I love eating big caramel apples and running through the leaves!
Even though I am married and have a home of my own now I suppose fall brings out the kid in me and it usually hangs around till the new year! I love the holidays too and I dream of the day when we will have our own kids and I can share all these things with them! But until that day comes I love spending these days with my wonderful Jonathan, family and of course all my great friends! There is really nothing quite like it!
To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. Ecclesiastes 3:1
