Chapter 9, Page 1, Book 19

By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather 
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson

September 1st- the unofficial beginning of fall

It’s that time of year agin—kids are heading back to school, the days are getting shorter, the carefree summer is winding down and some evening soon there will be a hint of autumn in the air.

As the calendar continues it’s relentless turn , the changes of the season may bring mixed emotions. Endings always do, whether its to a relationship, a job, or a dream.

Every ending is a new beginning.  Through the grace of God, we can always start again.

Marianne Williamson

September is the doorway to fall.  Time marches on, one season moves on to the next and we too must move forward. Labor Day weekend is here and we celebrate the end of summer and the unofficial beginning of fall.  

Saying goodbye to summer gets harder for me every year.  I’m already missing the longer hours of daylight.  Yet due to the of the heat of this summer, I’m looking forward to the cooler days ahead.  Every day might not be a good one, but there is truly something good to be found in each day when we take the time to look for it.

And all at once, summer collapsed into fall.

Oscar Wilde

It’s time to fall in love with fall.  For a while now, it won’t be too hot or too cold.  Summer is too hot and winter is too cold.  Fall is just right.  Every season  has its own upside. Fall has a particular beauty to it that is unlike any other.  With a new season comes new opportunities and change.  

Nature teaches us that in order for there to be something beautiful, something needs to give and fade for it to improve and become more beautiful.  September is month of change.

When the goldenrod is yellow,
and leaves are turning brown-
Reluctantly the summer goes 
In a cloud of thistledown

When squirrels are harvesting
And birds in flight appear
By these autumn signs we know
September days are here.

The seasons continue to turn. Time waits for no one.

Our weather is still quite hot and it seems hotter than last year these past few weeks so I'm ready for a little cooling down which will actually come in October here. It is getting dark shortly after 7 p.m. these days so we are slowly but surely moving into fall. The stores are letting us know as lots of pumpkins on display.

Beautiful post! I am ready for fall even though I am mourning summer's end a bit. It seems I never got a chance to really enjoy summer this year. Have a blessed weekend. xo Diana

Tho' my son says it won't begin to cool for another month, I'm intoxicated with Fall. I hope Heaven looks and tastes like Autumn. :)
