The rustling of leaves on a cold windy day, scarves and boots to keep up with the rapidly changing weather, and the coziness of blankets and dim lighting make me thankful for the acquired taste I have developed for tea this semester. For some odd but maybe slightly flattering reason everyone has pegged me as a tea person and until now I haven't been able to meet that preconceived notion. But friends, the delicious power of Good Earth original tea has stolen my taste buds and can be added to the long list of reasons I love perfectly autumn days like today.
The Celtic saying on the label struck me today as time always seems to be a burden and struggle for me and there never seems to be enough time in everyday. But how true is it that our Lord, creator of all things new and old, good and bad, created time in it of itself. What a beautiful reminder of Ecclesiastes 3:11 & 14 .
"He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that people will fear him."
Be blessed on this blustery fall day and rest in the idea that everything will be made beautiful in God's timing and that there is in fact enough of it. So pause, reflect, and savor the present moment.
