Autumn SkyAutumn ColorRed LeavesAutumn


The leaves … the crisp air … the clear skies.   The past few days have been absolutely gorgeous here in North Alabama.    We’ve enjoyed the vibrant colors of autumn after missing them for ten years while we were way down in South Georgia.


Yes, the leaves sometimes end up in corners and we find ourselves exhausted, weary, and in spiritual apathy.  But sometimes, it seems just the opposite.   The leaves fall and this season full of color also becomes the season full of opportunity.

We see the road ahead and dream of the ways God is at work …

Autumn Drive

The path we are on may have hidden turns ahead but we choose to walk it …

Path through fallen leaves

Perhaps this fall finds  you dancing with friends …


Maybe you feel like the outsider, just watching the fun …

This is the season of change … and change isn’t always easy.   But this is also the season of thanks.   And so, whether we are feel like dancing or feel like we’re drowning, whether the path ahead is open and exciting or hidden and frightening … we must choose to live in this truth:

Give thanks to the Lord for His unfailing love.  Psalm 107:8 NIV

What is this season bringing in your life?


Do you love the verse I shared above?  It’s on the amazing Give Thanks Wooden Caddy from Dayspring that I reviewed last week.   Dayspring has such amazing products that help us refocus on the things that really matter … things like giving thanks. {You can see reviews for all four of the {in}spired deals this month here.}   I love being a Dayspring affiliate and working with such an incredible company.  So incredible, in fact, that they are giving a $50 gift certificate (good for product only) to one of my readers.   So pop over to the DaySpring Home Page and then head back here to let me know what you’d use that gift certificate to buy.  Comments must be received by tomorrow at 11 pm CST.   Winner will be announced Wednesday morning.    

Read the Psalms this summer with Scripture Dig!


  1. That is a hard choice to pick something from DaySpring! I think though I would choose either Faith – Gallery Wrapped Canvas Print, or GRACE – 5 Tile Set. I really do love ALL of their products!

  2. I would order the Glad Tidings Christmas Ornament set. I am discipling a small group of young wives who are just establishing their homes, and my desire for their Christmas season is that they would lay a foundation of celebrating truth. These words would be a gift for each of them to remind them of what they celebrate.

  3. Very difficult choice, indeed! The wooden Give Thanks caddy keeps sticking with me (probably because of some awesome suggestions on the many ways to use it!). The “Do Not Conform” wooden plaque is another top choice because that is a theme that keeps coming up with the training of our kids (ages 13 and 10). I love Julie’s selection (the comment above mine). I love Julie, too!! Thank you for this post today – I was meditating on thankfulness today, and your post just sealed it for me!

  4. Decisions Decisions…

    I was able to narrow it to 2. The Wood Carved Ichthys Wall Hanging or the Become All That God Intended Block Art. Both are beautiful.

  5. I love the “Jesus is the Gift” Collection . It is a good reminder that He is here to help us through those difficult “changes of seasons”. Indeed the verse is so true…Give thanks to the Lord for His unfailing love. Thanks Teri for the reminders…love the pictures too! Norma

  6. If there’s one site that brings out my indecisivness, It’s Dayspring! Because I can’t decide what I love more…. I’ve been drooling over the tiles for awhile…and I sure love the block art. oh, but that caddy……
