a prayer for autumn days


God of the seasons, there is a time for everything;
there is a time for dying and a time for rising.
We need courage to enter into the transformation process.

God of autumn, the trees are saying goodbye
to their green, letting go of what has been.
We, too, have our moments of surrender, with all their insecurity and risk.
Help us to let go when we need to do so.

God of fallen leaves lying in colored patterns on
the ground, our lives have their own patterns.
As we see the patterns of our own growth, may we learn from them.

God of misty days and harvest moon nights, there is always
the dimension of mystery and wonder in our lives.
We always need to recognize your power-filled presence.
May we gain strength from this.

God of harvest wagons and fields of ripened grain, many gifts
of growth lie within the season of our surrender.
We must wait for harvest in faith and hope.
Grant us patience when we do not see the blessings.

God of geese going south for another season, your wisdom enables
us to know what needs to be left behind and what needs to be carried into the future.
We yearn for insight and vision.

God of flowers touched with frost and windows wearing white designs,
may your love keep our hearts from growing cold in the empty seasons.

God of life, you believe in us, you enrich us,
you entrust us with the freedom to choose life.
For all this, we are grateful.
Amen.

This prayer is written by Sr. Joyce Rupp, OSM. She is amazing amazing amazing. 
I would highly encourage you to look up her writings and books! 
This has spoken to me in the past week, and I thought I would share it with you guys <3

fashion friday: November Grey





 Better late than never... right? It's been really chilly, so my sweaters and knits have been coming out. I love winter clothes for about two months, before I get tired out rotating through the same outfits over and over. I was wearing a scarf with this, and I'm not exactly sure why I'm not wearing it it the pictures....

October Favorites




I am totally into short boots, boyfriend jeans, and cozy sweaters paired with scarves. (Basically, Pinterest) I love the scarves with the sweaters because it adds a touch of class, while still staying warm and cozy.



My dance class has a Facebook group message that use to chat, communicate about schedules, ask to borrow stuff, etc. Lately, we have been sharing hilarious memes and this is my current favorite. Our new artistic director is over zealous  diligent about our attendance to classes and rehearsals, so I love this. ;-) 


White Collar is one of my all time favorite t.v. shows ever. All the seasons are on Netflix and I love it. I have held of on all the series because of those silly things called grades, but this is one that I love. I cannot say enough good things about it.

  
Food wise, plain greet yogurt with honey is my October favorite. I've been eating a lot of Tupperware contained meals with my busy schedule, and this is my go-to. The sweet honey has awesome health benefits, and paired with the tart greek yogurt, it is absolutely delicious. It's also good with fruit ;-)


Organ chi tea lattes are my most favorite non-caffeinated drink. I'm not sure if these are just a north west thing, or if the whole country has access to these delicious sips of bliss. It's basically a creamier, more vanilla-ie, chi tea latte with some other yummy spices. It's October in a cup!

Q: What are your favorite October items?
