As you step out into the crisp, cool air of October, a season of preparation envelops you!
On all sides, the trees glow in their crimson and gold celebratory attire, their hues borrowed from the sky’s sunset palette.
Farmers harvest the field’s bountiful offering of tart, crispy apples, cheerful pumpkins, and fresh vegetables for winter months. Industrious squirrels stockpile mounds of nuts, while birds embark on for long flights in search of warmer weather.
We join in the preparations by putting away our light, summery clothes in exchange for cozy sweaters, colorful scarves, and warm boots.
As we ready homes and wardrobes for the changing season, our hearts begin to stir with anticipation for a rich, encouraging season of hospitality and community! The coming chilly months offer a chance to add to the joyful warmth of our homes by sharing them with others!
You can begin your preparations by downloading this month’s inspiring screensavers to remind you that much beauty and richness await during these crisp weeks of fall!
