Fall is finally hitting our trees here in Kansas City.
For me, fall has not always been my favorite time of the year. Growing up fall was the beginning of the school year which implied another long set of months being bullied. Then as I grew up it become the time of year to represent the ending of relationships, other not so great experiences, and then in 2010 the passing of my father.
However, in the past few years I have worked hard to redefine fall in my life. I got married last fall, and enjoyed an amazing honeymoon in the Azores. I am embracing the biblical significance of fall being a time to rid yourself of the negatives, the things that need changed and to start prioritizing the things I want to carry into the winter, and grow through the spring.
Now, Fall is a time to rejoice the ending and beginning of new chapters in my life, and in the lives of those around me.
