There’s something about the first day of November that makes the Fall season seem so official! When I think of this time of year I think of harvest time, and all the fruits and vegetables in their bounty, in their abundance! The crops rich in their colors and aromas! In my mind I can only thank the farmers for being so diligent in the days they had to sow etc. I can only be thankful that they used their days wisely that I may be able to enjoy the work of their hands!
This evening for the first time I saw this in a different light; as I sat watching Hallmark Channel, start their Heart of Christmas Movie Countdown with the kids , across the screen flashed that there was 53 days till Christmas and P’nut yelled it out! He then added 53 days of amazing life!
What if we took on the mindset of this little boy? Instead of seeing a couple of Holidays in these next couple of months that we see this time as 53 full days of complete amazing life?
Webster’s Dictionary says that the word Bounty is mostly associated with a great harvest that produces lots of food, it’s known as nature’s bounty.
In actuality bounty means generosity in giving; something given freely; a generous gift.
So instead of seeing Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, we should see all of them as 53 days of amazing life, 53 days of bounty, 53 days that have been given freely to us. Given freely for us to enjoy and use wisely each and every second of them in their abundance!
If we are diligent with the days we are given freely and generously by our Heavenly Father and use them to give ourselves completely to family, friends etc. We will produce rich colorful memories, filled with the sweet aroma of love! doing this will ensure the time taken will produce memories that will last!
53 days of complete amazing life, to seize the moments of bounty!
