A woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.
Give her the product of her hands,
And let her works praise her in the gates." (Proverbs 31:30b-31, NASV)

The change of the seasons is upon us! The leaves have started falling, there's a cool breeze blowing, and the hot, humid Tennessee summer is slowly giving way to Fall. And with it comes changes - sleeveless dresses give way to jackets, flip flops to boots, bikinis to long johns, short shorts to ankle warmers. Crisp summer salads will soon be blended into warm, delicately spiced soups, popcicles will melt before a hot oven full of cookies and gingerbread. Fall. Soon the house will be full of cheerful decorations - little straw men with happy faces wearing patched, orange overalls, pumpkins carved with toothy grins, and, as October approaches, dancing skeletons. Yes, I will miss summer, summer with its lime greens, hot pinks, and bright yellows, but oh summer will come again - now is the time for woody browns, gourd oranges, and school bus yellows.

And what makes the change really special? I get to ring in the coming of Fall with my husband's birthday. The crochet hook is out, and the true mark of Fall - a new scarf - is here, just waiting to be unwrapped (I hope he likes it!).
