Fall is lovely.
I do enjoy summer, I go through the summer doing my best to enjoy the weather and to take full advantage of being outside as often as I can. Summer comes with time in the pool and as much sun-delivered vitamin D as possible, and watermelon. So much watermelon.
But, in the summer, I feel foggy. My head feels sleepy in the heat, and my mind wants to wonder. I struggle to buckle down and study. Study the Bible, to read scholarly sources. My brain goes on vacation.
In the fall, when the air is crisp at night and the stars start to shift, my mind becomes sharp again. I wake up feeling sharp, and I want to learn. I want to do something new and mentally challenging. I finally feel awake again.
What are you looking forward to this fall? (And am I the only one who feels like the fall cleans the cobwebs out of my brain?)
