Even during these sizzling, steamy days, fall is in the air. I feel it on my morning walks. I see it as children and parents stream past our home on their way to school. I hear it from the crowd at Friday night football games.

When a season changes we have the opportunity to make changes as well. To add something to our lives. To remove something from our lives. To choose to alter a habit. To take better care of ourselves.

Recently, words from a meme spoke to me:

Me: [Sobbing] I can’t see you anymore, I won’t let you hurt me again.

Trainer:  It was a sit-up.  You did one sit-up.

Changing patterns and habits is hard!  …and God is always offering newness; doing new things.

Consider something you’d like to change this fall.  What’s the right next step?
