Man, I have said it before and I will say it again. Fall makes me thrive. It is my best self brought to life. The flavors, the smells, the fashion, the holidays. It’s my favorite. To me, fall is the most tangible season. One that illuminates every sense within, from head to toe to the very core of our souls. With it’s long awaited arrival comes the brisk air of hope – A change you can literally feel blow through as present as the pumpkins on the front porch and the coffee warming your hands as you stand in silence soaking it all in. An air of change that reminds you the best is truly yet to come. I think my purest joy comes from that first morning of fall when I step outside and can SMELL the change. You know what I mean? It’s the scent of a cold front on the dewy grass.
I wanted to share this cute fall look with one of my favorite recent purchases from Zara, along with my current devotional I am doing. If you’ve been around The Cake a bit, you probably have caught on I love all things Lysa Terkeurst. She is an amazing writer and teacher. I have read her books *she has a new one coming out that I pre-ordered already!* and I am knocking out her 40 day devotional right now. It’s as beautiful as it is enlightening. I am all about the history of the Bible and learning how the stories piece together, start to finish. If you haven’t ever done a study or learned this specific aspect of the Bible before, I am going to SUPER urge you more than anybody else to get this! But, everybody should get it. 😉 It’s a 40 day study through the entire Bible with a focus on longings of the heart. Ultimately, of course, leading back to the truth that we were created with a longing for ONE thing and that’s found only in our God. Our hopes, our purpose, our dreams, our desires… it can all be found in who God created us to be. And that comes through a relationship with him. I have found it best to read the First5 App that is also doing the study along with the book. I go there to read the scriptures and then dive deeper and journal with the book.
