What does the Autumnal Equinox mean to me

For me, fall represents a time of reflection.

The summer has come to an end, the seasons are changing, and the beautiful changing colors of fall all bring me to a sense of reflection.

I’m reminded of the importance in finding some quiet time in solitude to reflect these days.

Finding solitude and spending those silent moments with God is important. 

Implementing Silence and Solitude into Our Lifestyles is not always easy.

According to Mary Whelchel, the Christian Working Woman, she says, “This discipline, while taught little, is a major pathway to spiritual maturity. Unless we are willing to make lifestyle changes to get alone in silence with the Father, our spiritual development will be greatly hampered. Church activities will not replace what this time alone with God can do.”

The Bible tells us to get alone with God, to hear His voice and listen for His instruction.

“Be still, and know that I am God…” (Psalm 46:10).

It’s harvest time, time to pull in those crops. Time to prepare the garden, plant the bulbs for next spring’s blooms, these are days of preparation.

What does the Autumnal Equinoxis mean to me?

Besides the fact days become shorter, today is the first day when day and night are balanced. To me it’s all about refreshing one’s soul in solitude and harvesting the crops of summer. A gathering of nourishment, you might say, of the soul, mind and spirit.

Autumn calls upon itself with the change of seasons. As we too are constantly changing, during this reflective season, we can look back over the past year and recall those good times and bad times.

If Spring is a growing period, then Autumn is the harvest of those crops, those seeds we planted months ago. It’s when we can see all that God has done in our lives. We hold on to the fact that He remains in our lives, right by our side in good times and bad. It’s a time to reflect on answered prayers, a time to see His glory in our lives.

A time to reflect on our journey. To me that is what Autumn is all about.

Happy Autumnal Equinoxis!
