Fall

Fall is most certainly my favorite of all the seasons. I love the weather, the smells, the tastes and the general life pace and nature of fall. Its not hot and chaotic like summer, its not wet and inconsistent like spring and its not quite as harsh as the winter. Loving the color orange and all things flavored pumpkin certainly does not hurt, but the nature of fall is also so nice. I love the colors and the clear change of season. Football, the start of the school year routine and the preparation for Christmas add to the joy of the fall season. The crisp mornings and evenings make the warmth of the day all the more spectacular.

This fall I am excited to embrace the season as it is more pronounced in Indiana than Colorado. Its also nice this year because the start of fall brings the end of the season of transition and I am basically caught up in all areas of life. I love the football season and am enjoying so much more time with my family this fall. I am looking forward to the full routine that comes with the start of October. God is most certainly good and the seasons bring great rhythm to my life.

Why I love the color Orange…

I often get asked (more so lately as I have moved to a new area) why it is that I love orange so much. When I am asked, I generally offer one of a couple responses, but decided that it would be fun to write a blog about why I enjoy the color orange so much.

 

  1. I have always liked the color orange. It is vibrant, fun, easy to notice and not as celebrated as many of the other main colors.

 

  1. I grew up near Syracuse, NY, home of the Syracuse Orange. I am a fan, particularly when it comes to college basketball.

 

  1. I love pumpkin. I love all things flavored pumpkin; pumpkin spice latte’s, pumpkin pie, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin cupcakes, pumpkin beer, pumpkin soup, pumpkin candy, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin chocolate chip pancakes, pumpkin ice cream and so on…

 

  1. The Denver Broncos. Admittedly this is a new reason to like orange. I was not a fan (also did not dislike them) until Peyton Manning came to Denver. I am a huge fan of his. Having lived in Colorado and having liked orange along with Peyton, I figured it was time. Plus, Denver is Orange/Blue/White just like Syracuse, so why not?

 

  1. The orange church. This is also a new one, but a movement called Orange thinks about the color orange in a new way in the life of the church and families. Red represents the heart, the family and yellow represents the light, the church. The two forces separate are not as powerful as the two forces together as they create a new thing; orange.

 

So there you have it, the five main reasons I like the color orange. Now you know and you can find total fulfillment in life.
