First, we wore orange. Duh.
Then we sipped pumpkin spice lattes and ate pumpkin scones on our way to the Getty. Delicious!
We also celebrated in September. Pumpkin Day can't be in October. That's just cliche.
Saddleback Church is doing 40 Days of Love this fall and my small group is currently doing the study. Do you want to know what we're learning? Well, one of our group members, Brian, has started his own blog to aid in our study of learning to love like Jesus. (The domain name is abetterlover.blogspot.com...can you believe that wasn't already taken? Unbelievable.) Brian is an insightful person and our group has had some great discussions so far. I've learned that I'm really not as good at loving people as I thought. You should read his blog to see what our group is learning.
Love is the most important thing!!
I want my thoughts to bathe in Heaven’s lights
I want wisdom to crown my head like a garland
I want beauty that is musical as a waterfall
I want my heart to be soft as flowers
I want my love to be dangerous
I want my dreams to sleep on a cloud of truth every night
I want my voice to be golden as happiness
I want my laugh to ornament the world with sincerity
I want to seek adventure like lost time
I want to throw my dreams in a rainbow for everyone to see
I want my faith to swallow my voice and echo to the world
I want my fear to be lost in all that God is
That’s all I want.
