Five Minute Friday: Fall — 15 Comments

  1. I’m getting a kick out of the fact that you linked up ahead of me, and we both chose to write on the fall season! Love it! =) And I love your take on what it means to you. A dear friend of mine moved from our native Minnesota to sunny San Diego, and was sorely missing fall last year. We have toddler boys the same age. So I packed up some autumn leaves in a box and mailed them out to her! She was able to have her son play in the crisp leaves after all =) Your words about Malaysia made me think of this story. If you’re homesick this year, just let me know. I’ll ship you some autumn-in-a-box =)

  2. I think you and I could chat for hours over coffee. 🙂 My husband and I lived in Indonesia from 2005-2010, and while we embraced life there, one of the things we missed most was the change in seasons. And so I get that, and a piece of my heart is there with you today. Like you, I tried to focus on the things I loved about being there…warm weather, lots of sunshine, butterflies, amazing people, the list goes on. There truly are blessings everywhere, and now that we’re back in the States and missing Indonesia, I count my blessings here. Say hi to the lovely tropics for me! Bless you, sweet sister. Happy Friday to you!

    • I agree, Mel! I would love to have coffee with you! Anytime you’re in Penang, just give me a buzz and I’ll treat! 🙂 We were in Indonesia from 2004-2011! I wonder if our paths ever crossed. We were in Bandung 2004, Malang 2005, and then Bali from 2006-2011. Where were you all? I really enjoyed reading your post today too. The tropics return your greetings! Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. You live in a beautiful place, that’s for sure. I love Fall. It’s my favorite season. The rich colors, not too hot or too cold. But hey, the beach is a great trade off! Enjoy your weekend.

  4. Yes! My family and I lived in the Horn of Africa (desert) for several years and I SO missed the colors of New England in the fall. And yet, there are so many desert things that I miss these days…. The invitation to gratitude and the pathway to contentment is always there, waiting for us to say “yes!” Thank you for the reminder.

  5. Wow, I didn’t know that you live in Malaysia! We had a friend that was killed recently but he lived in Kuala Lampur. He was a pastor there. It looked like a real beautiful place from his pictures that he shared.

    I loved what you said about contentment flowing from a heart of gratitude! Awesome!

    Thanks for linking up to the “Making Your Home Sing Monday” linky party today! 🙂
