What Are You Doing With The Changing Seasons Of Your Life?

We've had a temperature change this morning and this is what the sunrise looked like this morning.  We are definitely moving into autumn.

"All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” 
- Gandalf in The Fellowship of the Ring by JRR Tolkien.

For some reason it is in the changing of the season into autumn, that I feel more a sense of changing time, of years moving on and my life changing.  Of course our lives do change, always.  The Bible says that "our lives are but a vapor."

This is why I love Gandalf's quote so much.  What will I do with the unknown time I have left?

For me, I've determined to encourage and build up my family, and to encourage women, as God gives me opportunity.

What about you?  What are you looking to do with your years?


  1. I love your thoughts about what you will do with your time left. Loving my family and encouraging women as God gives me opportunity. In a nutshell that is my heart too.

    It's very autumny here this morning. Cool, sunny, crisp.

  2. Great food for thought...Something to meditate on for sure.

  3. Good thoughts here today, Deanna. I have found that as the seasons of my life have changed, one thing just flows into another and there is more than enough to fill my time. (I hardly have time to blog these days!)
