I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend celebrating the end of October and the start to yet another beautiful month of fall: November. While the former is definitely my favorite, I also love the latter. The air gets chillier, we all get a little cozier, and the leaves finalize their descent to the ground. It's kind of magical, right?
Another reason I am excited for this new month is because the general mood around November seems to be one of increased joy and thankfulness. I think that we are all on similar journeys in that we're continuously learning the importance of being thankful, regardless of our circumstances (1 Thessalonians 5:18). And seeing as how joy is a natural byproduct of giving thanks, I am so ready to take the time each day this month to intentionally put on an attitude of thanksgiving, focusing on all of the wonderful things I have, most of which I don't deserve... namely Jesus and His grace.
Here's to November!

Lastly and just for some laughs: I'm not one too get too into Halloween nowadays, but I never pass up the chance to dress up as my favorite person/character/legend. And I don't mess around...
