Executive Secretary & Director of Cottage Admissions, Sarah Dolbeare writes…

Can you believe September is here already? The coming of Autumn/Fall is a glorious reminder of the beauty of the earth. Whatever else may be happening, the extravagance of color lifts my spirit. And long after the leaves have fallen and the snow flies, the memory of this beauty lingers as a treasured image. “For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven…”

There is a profound message in the passage of the seasons. Each has its own array of color, its own beauty and its own truth. Each gives witness to being part of a larger whole and a more enduring reality. Autumn has the riot of colors that give way to darker tones and a season with a very different kind of beauty. “For everything there is a season, and time for every matter…”

All of life is a gift. Autumn is an invitation to behold the beauty around us; to look for the joys of creation; to celebrate the passage of the seasons. It is an invocation, a call from the eternal to appreciate the opportunity in the present moment to see the hand of the Creator. When we see before us the movement of the seasons, we become witnesses to a holy passage which leads to life. “For everything there is a season…”

This autumn take time to reverently hold a bouquet of leaves and fall flowers in your hand and share them with someone. Take time to stand in awe before a tree and its blazing hue. Find a place where you can look out over a panorama of autumn beauty, and then offer a prayer of thanksgiving to God, “For everything…!”
