It’s a blow on your hands for warmin’ sort of afternoon. The kind of day when words just seem to be simmerin’ like cinnamon sticks and cloves and oranges on the back burner.
Where, instead of voice, pumpkin spice and peach cobbler muffins — served fresh-baked in quaint cafe — waft their plummy, Autumny call to each passersby, like the invitation to throw care to the breeze and crunch through fallen leaves. Nearby homes leave their lanterns glowing midday, surely as a “Warm yourself by the fire” greeting to any wandering sojourner…
And a waterfall sings it’s song of Gold-leaf glory beside the old wooden bridge…
Just around the corner, it feels as though you’ve been following a breadcrumb trail behind Hansel and Gretel, when you stumble upon just such a storybook cottage…ivy-covered window (left of the round door) and all…
And breathing a SELAH seems to be the whisper on your spirit today.
I thought I’d take you along for an Autumn walk,
invite you simply to reflect alongside me,
ponder Words in our hearts
to be spoken
“Mary kept all these things…,
holding them dear, deep within herself.”
~ Luke 2:19 [The Message]
This is day 17 of my fall series (although, this is a break from the topic of sorts)– 31 days to An Autumn Harvest of our Words. For these posts, I thought I’d explore a different twist on why our words matter…
Has God set a law of sowing and reaping
and harvest time
— not just in the natural world around us —
but also into our very spoken words?
