Fall is my favorite time of year.  God really created an art piece when He created Fall.  The colors of the leaves, apples, mums, and pumpkins; the smell of baked apples, pumpkin pie, and apple cider; the feeling of snuggling under a blanket, crisp cool mornings, and leaves crushing beneath my feet.

Fall is a new season that brings new sights and sounds, but it is also a season of familiarity that I have come to love. Yet this year, I want fall to be a little different.  You see, this year, I want to spend time enjoying God's masterpiece, but I want to spend more time falling in love with the Creator.

I want to spend this Fall sitting outside looking at the leaves He created, snuggled in a blanket reading my Bible.  He took the time to create the beauty I see around me, the season I have come to love so much.  He created all that I am, all that I have, and all that I love.  I want to give Him the credit, and I want to remember that I enjoy Fall... only because He first created it.

I will enjoy this Fall, His creation, His masterpiece, but I pray I will fall into a deeper relationship with God even more.
