Falling Back In

I Walked Outside

I walked outside this morning and could not believe that I was feeling a cool breeze. Yes, it seems as though the Fall season is upon us. This afternoon while picking up a prescription at Walgreen’s, I noticed they’re already beginning to display Christmas decorations. I began to think that once the cool air arrives, we all seem to let Fall rush by as we anticipate Winter and we miss the joys of this time of year that God blesses us with.

Beginning of the Fall Season

With the beginning of the Fall season arriving also begins the kickoff of Fall ministries here at SCC. A summer of planning and preparing has now yielded a time of harvest in sharing God’s word through teaching, supplication, and shepherding of all ages. Preschool Pals begins and you see Moms with tears on the first day as they leave their little ones behind but by day two, they’re giddy with excitement as they can now run errands without the wee little hands tugging at their legs! Yes, the Fall season brings a renewed excitement as the diverse ministries of SCC begin again and it reminds us that knowing God is and should be our life’s major pursuit.

Favorite Memories

As I began to think about looking forward though, I began to recall some of my favorite Fall memories. My best Fall was the year I met my wife, Kim. No pun intended but yes, we did fall in love and God has immensely blessed my life since that day. What is your favorite Fall memory? Did you also meet your spouse or did God take you on an awesome journey that held on for the ride? As we move through our daily tasks, I hope all of us will take time and enjoy the view and find a renewed spirit as ministry kicks off again. And who knows, you might end up falling in love with God, all over again.

Enjoy this season and do your best to avoid the temptation to buy the colored Christmas lights or dancing Santa Claus until December 1st!
