Here is to our Jenni girl!!!

Autumn Equinox marks the first day of Fall . . . September 23, 2014. The leaves fall and bare branches are a reminder to me of the fleeting nature of all things . . . I grow more appreciative of all the beauties that surround me. As I watch the leaves fluttering to the ground it is a mirror in my own life . . . this is a season I will let go and release things that have been a burden. Fall is the right time for me to practice getting out of the way and letting God’s Spirit take charge of my life . . .
