Fall is my favorite time of year. Its cool, crisp mornings mingled with vibrant golden hues signify a change–from long hours of busyness to shorter days to slow us down. It offer us an opportunity to enjoy simplistic moments and a time of resting.

Our lives have become a cycle of busyness where we’re so distracted by the next moment, we lose the enjoyment in living within the moment today.

Thank God for what He’s doing right now in this season, today.
‘Tis the Season for a Time-Out–
This season, take time to enjoy simplistic moments. Shed the busyness and rest in God’s grace. [tweetable]
