In the northern hemisphere, we are at a clear change of season, moving from summer to autumn. Most crops are harvested, some trees are changing colour, leaves are falling, the temperature is dropping – and yes and the rainfall has most definitely increased!
Observing the seasonal rhythms is a joy in itself. We can also though notice a season in nature and be intentional in thinking through how it speaks to us.
Here I am focusing on that change from summer to autumn.
As you see trees getting ready to let go of their leaves, does it prompt any thoughts of something you need to let go of? It might be letting go of something only for a period of time or more permanently. Like the leaves, it might be something that has been a good thing in your life but is now no longer useful.
The seasons come and go. Seasons in our lives also come and go. Take time to notice. Be wiser for it.
