Today is the first day of Fall. When I (Rev. Gail) first came to Canada from England, I was always so impressed by the colours of Fall in Canada. There is a tree in my neighbours garden that I watch each day as it slowly changes colour. Sometimes it is easy to walk past without noticing, but today, take a moment to allow the beauty of colour to sink in.
Somewhere in your line of vision, in a visual image or in your immediate surroundings, spot a colour that appeals to you. It might just be looking out of your window.
Consider the colour for a moment.
Notice the distinctness of its shading and hue.
Notice how it sits beside the other colours that you can see.
For a few minutes, silently reflect on the way that the colour speaks to you.
In your spiritual imagination, take that colour into your heart and let it bring you warmth and comfort.
Close your eyes and enjoy the gift of this moment.
Peace, Rev. Gail
