Peace be with you


I love just about everything related to fall.  I love waking up when it's still dark outside, savoring my first cup of coffee in the glow of my computer screen.  I love the heavy dew that saturates our dogs' paws.  I love having to put on socks and a sweatshirt for my morning walk.  I love the crunch of leaves underfoot and the smell of my neighbors' wood stoves. I love the sun's lower angle throughout the day, especially in the early evening hours when it seems the leaves have burst into orange, yellow, ochre, red, and purple flame. I love cooking a different menu of foods:  soups, casseroles, and one-pot meals.  I love wearing a soft cotton nightshirt to bed and putting on a flannel robe and slippers in the morning. And I love the promise of new programs at the church where I pastor, at school, on television, and on the internet via free college curricula (see Coursera.org). I'm at peace in this season.  I wish you the same.
