It’s the last day of November and the holiday season is already in full swing. The leaves are turning from orange to brown and falling more rapidly than I prefer and I wanted to take a moment to pause and recognize November for what it was, what it is and what it gives us …

Rhythms of November 

The leaves fall and my soul settles

The darkness comes early 

And our bodies fall into a rhythm as old as time 

We sync with the earth

A natural song and dance designed just for us

Work and rest

There is something about this time of year

When nature slows down

It brings us also back to our own center

The chill in the air feels light

The bite of winter not yet here

Fires come alive

Candles twinkle

We pull the covers up and pause a moment longer

But the light of the morning and the orange of the leaves call to us

The smell of the air and the crunch under our feet beckon us a little further 

The trail opens 

Fog covers the lake

But not our hearts 


As beautiful and mysterious as time itself 

God reveals himself in a thousand little ways

If only we stop to notice
