Autumn - the Season of Longings

 October offers much for personal reflection: beauty, color, gratitude, surrender, letting go, transformation, shadows, shorter days and longer nights.

Autumn implies a sense of longing.  Summer days are gone and winter days loom ahead.  We are not yet ready to let go.  Yet God has given us this special time to transition ourselves from one season to the other.  Life goes on and change is with us in a new way.  Autumn speaks of mystery and God's presence in a different way.

God invites us to move inwards, into our hearts and reflect on our deepest longings.  To get us through the cold winter days, we have the memories of summer and the up-coming opportunity to give thanks and express our gratitude to God for all the gifts we have been given.  Our blessings become the sustenance and nourishment, interior and exterior that carry us through this cycle of life until next spring.

We move on as the flow of God's grace continues to enrich the very core of our beings.  Each of us has particular desires and longings that ache for tender care and kindness.  As each leaf falls to the ground and the trees become bare, we too, might reflect on the leaves that must fall from our lives in order to bring about transformation, new life and greater beauty.
