When we take a deep breath of fresh, clean, crisp air, we know Fall is near.  We are able to start back on regular schedules and look forward to the up and coming holidays.  Isn’t it wonderful?!

Fall is a magical time for a lot of people.  Some were married in the Fall.  Some fell in love for the first time just as the leaves were changing.  Whatever the case may be, Fall holds a special place in most of our hearts.

We as Christians should take advantage of this romantic time of year to fall in love again with our Savior.  He has given us life and breath and the least we can do is share it with Him.  Maybe take a walk in the cool air and ask Jesus to come, too, or meditate and talk to Him throughout the evening about a particular verse you have read.

No matter how simple it may seem to us, it would be very pleasing to God.  James 4:8 says, “Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you.”  As we plan for Fall, let’s not forget to plan to fall in love.
