A Time to Give Thanks

November – falling leaves; chilly air;harvest time; pumpkins, long nights; Thanksgiving.  Signs of change and transformation.  The life cycle continues.

Autumn trees, butterflies and chameleons have much to tell us about change, transition and transformation.

The call is to let go and surrender our beautiful leaves in order to cover the ground to prepare it for new life.  The call is to wait for the right time to emerge into something even more beautiful.

Autumn days, with leaves crunching under our feet, wind stirring the wind-chimes, and empty trees invite us to a warmth that comes only from within.  Autumn days provide the opportunity to prepare ourselves for the Advent days of December – awaiting the Savior.

This Thanksgiving let us thank God not only for the obvious gifts in our lives, but for those that make us uncomfortable and strengthen our souls.  These, too, in hindsight, may be the best gifts God intends for us.
