Autumn—My Favorite Time of Year

by Edie Melson @EdieMelson

Autumn is my favorite time of the year—the crisp air and beautiful colors pull me out of doors at every opportunity. What is your favorite part of the fall?

  1. Edie,

    Fall is also my absolute favorite time of year! As a lifelong Wisconsinite, I have been blessed with the beauty and richness of all four seasons, yet fall always seems to give way to more worship when I am outside. I am a runner, not the kind of runner who has to be listening to music or a message or carry their phone along, or check heart rates or miles or, I am the kind of runner that feels my Father's everlasting embrace through the beauty of creation. Deep reds and fiery orange against brilliant blue, the scent of one season shifting to the next, the crunch of fallen leaves under my bouncing feet all wrapped up in the remaining summer sun on its way out...its intoxicating to me. I usually worship and pray on my runs and say to the one who spoke all of this into being, "I can't believe I get to see this today, God! You are so very good to me, thank you!"

  2. Fall is my favorite time also. I love the color in the leaves, sweaters, cowboy boots, and apple picking with my son.
