5 Ways God Speaks in the Fall

Written by Tiffany French

The transition into fall always starts slowly. As we are going about our day, we may see a bit of yellow, a pop of orange, or a shock of red creep into the bounty of green that’s tinted the landscape for the past three months. But then, the signs for school, harvest vegetables, and the impending holiday season instantly speed up those last remaining summer days.  Though we may lament the start of a season just one step away from another dreaded winter, in fall we get a glimpse of God’s great artistry in the autumnal hues that surround us and the crisp nights that embrace us. Here are five ways God speaks during fall:


1
Leaves

 

Though nuisances for some and creative play for others, the colorfully radiant shower of falling leaves should remind us not that our time of summer play is over, but that a time of winter rest and reflection is just what we need to rejuvenate and prepare for what’s next.


2
Pies

 

Whether your fall favorite is apple or pumpkin, there is nothing more comforting than the aroma from a fresh baked harvest pie. What’s even better is the gathering of family and friends around a table enjoying that pie with you, and being thankful for its bountiful sweetness.


3
Bright mornings and crisp nights

 

The rising sun reflecting off the colors of the trees makes a spectacle of beauty as we drive to our jobs, walk our dogs or usher the kids to school. In contrast, as the sun sets and the earth cools, a crisp air moves in that signifies fall has truly arrived, causing us to stop and reflect on this glorious change in weather.

Soup on a stove

 

What could be more perfect on a bright fall day than a simmering pot of potato soup or a bowl of chili that is ready to be gratefully consumed by you, a neighbor down the street or your friends at church?


5
Hooded sweatshirts

 

Though not cold enough for the full-body parka and not warm-enough for bare arms, a hooded sweatshirt is the perfect piece of clothing for crisp fall evenings as you stroll through your neighborhood or sit back with a cup of hot tea or glass of wine.
