Fall is here! School is in session, tourist season is over, the fish have fled, and most of us settle down to a new routine. I have always loved Fall – it is, for me, a time for family gatherings and watching the transition to the beautiful snow of Winter. It is also a time of reflection as we look back on the year and consider what we have accomplished and what we need to do in the future. As you prepare to think about the upcoming Holidays and cozy evenings by the fireplace, please remember to practice true gratitude for the blessings God grants each of us and stay tuned in to The Holy Spirit’s promptings as He continues to guide us to productive and fruitful lives. Take the challenge – become a “Holy Spirit Tree!” May your lives be filled with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
