"The end-of-summer winds make people restless." -Faulks
August is to my fall what March is to my spring. A time of deep cleaning, renewal and rekindled dreams.
I love watching the weather change during this season. Late summer storms bring on hints of fall as the leaves swirl around, and the colors begin to change.
This August has seemed particularly charged. A bit much for my ENFP heart. I feel overwhelmed by everything around me. The world is a broken, shattered place in desperate need of a Savior to fill voids that have been left wide open.
Last year, I took the entire month of August off from social media. It was good. This year, I've had so many work projects that use social media, that I haven't had the privilege to do so. Instead, I figured I would spend the next few days keeping my calendar dialed down a bit. I want to choose simple and quiet over noisy and busy. Savor the coming fall. Ready the house for a season full of holidays and birthdays. Maybe I'll even bake a pumpkin pie. Just because.
