Here's another attempt to mix Five Minute Friday with 31 Days of Chocolate, because we know behind all good writing is some good chocolate...
Today's Prompt: Ordinary
Seasons come and season go; spring, summer, autumn, and winter. We each have our favorites. Mine has always been SUMMER because I like sunshine and I need warmth. While Autumn is beautiful, it means that Winter is coming... and that is one season I could mostly live without!
But one thing I never take for granted is the colors of fall. They are anything but ordinary! God splashes his paintbrush across my Pennsylvania mountains and every day the scene changes just a little bit. A little more red here and bucket of yellow here and let's remove that green and leave that tree bare for a contrast in the scenery.
And up here on my mountain, as the leaves fall, it opens up a whole new view of the valley... yes, it's a city down there, but it's still beautiful. I always want to be noticing, always giving thanks for the beauty that God shares with us every day. I want to take time to notice!
And I want to take time for chocolate, because we all know there ain't nothing ordinary about good chocolate!!
Community Conversation: What does Fall mean where you live? Do you see it as ordinary or extraordinary?
Yes, I am working to share one promise every day. To see all my #31Days of Dove Promises head to this page and bookmark it, pin it, or just subscribe to my blog and we can enjoy a little bit of chocolate together every day this month.
