I love the new season that’s nearly upon us! I know it’s still summer, but I’m counting down the days till September offers us fallen acorns, chilly mornings, autumn candles, and the hope of a fresh semester. I find myself full of anticipation. It’s time for new things! I’m putting this in place for the new: new exercise and eating habits, new friendships, new professional opportunities, and new spiritual practices. My new spiritual practices include adding in a chronological Bible reading plan, a deeper commitment to morning and evening prayer, and the practice of calling to mind my dependence on God throughout the day. Here are some of my pumpkins! Enjoy!
