With the onset of college football, the first weekend in September, and the return of Pumpkin Spice Lattes (had my first pumpkin spice of the season this morning!) I am pining for the change in season. I want to kick up my cowgirl-booted heels, do-si-do my partner, scour the pumpkin patch for the just right pick with family and friends, and savor the cooler breezes of fall to accompany the fiery orange sunsets.
In short, I am ready to welcome fall.
For my fellow Pinterest users, the one thing I love most about Pinterest is the inspiration that it provides. The beautiful pictures and thoughtful capturing of memories stimulates my creative thought processes. However, Pinterest is the only place that simultaneously has me wanting to eat a Reese’s and run a 5K in the same breath! You ladies know what I am talking about!
When I walk away from a pinning session on Pinterest, I want to be inspired to:
- create beauty in my own home with resources that I already have on hand or can acquire cheaply
- have ideas to organize my home or feed the hungry bellies in this house
- capture an idea to write about
- see the beauty before me and let it conjure thoughts of Home
I always desire to walk away contented that where I am and what I have is enough for me because this is what He has ordained. For me, Pinterest is a tool, not a reflection of my treasures.
I can’t wait. What about you? What most do you enjoy about the fall? In what ways does the fall point your thoughts toward the Kingdom, towards God? I would love for you to share your thoughts with me. Until Monday…
