Sheaves in Autumn

 Autumn, Höst, Fall...there is no other season that our souls are more connected to. It is our favorite season of all, the season that brings us the most joy. 
The season where we most feel like we are truly ourselves. A season of color, beauty, bounty, and gratitude. 
We are children of Fall; born two days apart from each other at the end of October.
We were wed on the 1st day of Fall (September 22, 2012)…the Autumnal Equinox; a day when day and night are equal and all is in harmony.
Harvest…a time to reap the crops, bring in the sheaves, reap the rewards of hard labor and rejoice over the bountiful abundance.
We are so glad that we live in a world where there are Octobers. The air is crisp and there is a certain magic to it. The days grow darker but are brought to light with candles, jack-o’-lanterns, and fires.
In Halloween time we embrace our spooky side (though we do that all year long as well).

Pumpkin carving, trick or treating, and masquerading on Halloween night. 
All Saints Day (Alla Helgons Dag) is a time to be with family and remember those who are no long with us. 
We have plenty to be thankful for all year round but Thanksgiving is a special day to think of everything we are thankful for. 
A day to realize how blessed we are and celebrate with our loved ones around a table filled with delicious food. 
 A cornucopia of blessings; our “horn of plenty”.
In Autumn's season we are thankful for apples, pumpkins, autumn leaves, the falling of leaves, the sound of leaves crunching under our feet as we walk. 
Most of all we love the COLOR everywhere! 
Orange, red, yellow…Nature bursts with magnificent color and beauty. 
For all these reasons we are most thankful and grateful for all the things that make up our favorite season of all.
Autumn Greetings & Blessings!
