Peggy I am so glad you liked this devotion. Thank you so much for stopping by. Be and stay blessed!
The fragrant smells of pumpkin spice and everything nice. Cooler weather as the leaves began to change into an assortment of orange and brown colors. Autumn decor and changing of the wreaths on our front doors to welcome Fall in all its colorful splendor. Frantically shopping for school supplies, officially marking the end of August. Did you know the month of September is comprised of 200 holidays? Everything from American Chess Day to National Love People Day and every holiday in between!
How quickly 2021 has passed us by. Thanksgiving is quickly approaching meaning Christmas is not far behind! Seems like only yesterday we saw January 1. Where did the time go? With Labor Day on the first Monday of this month, honoring the workforce of America and Bermuda. Most of us can’t wait to have a day off to simply relax and enjoy life. No emails, no faxes, just fun, and relaxation.
One of the reasons we are so blessed to be able to relax and enjoy rest from our labors is because of VJ Day. This day marks the end of WWII and the cessation of fighting against Japan. The ceremony and formal signing of surrender were on September 2.
Another celebration is the Jewish Holiday Rosh Hashanah on September 6 beginning at sundown.
As we go from celebratory to somber…On September 11, Patriot Day gives all of us time to reflect on the devastating terror attacks that took nearly 3,000 lives. We commemorate those who we lost and give thanks to the brave first responders who put their lives on the line. Take a moment, on this day, to consider what we stand for as a nation and how we can work together to make the world a better place for all.
A little September Trivia: Did you know? September was called “harvest month” in Charlemagne‘s calendar. September corresponds partly to the Fructidor and partly to the Vendémiaire of the first French republic. On Usenet, it is said that September 1993 (Eternal September) never ended.
And with the betterment for all in mind…Here’s to a new month, a new chapter with a new page in your life covered with new wishes just for you! May this month give you courage, strength, confidence, patience. self-love and inner peace. May every day in September fill your days with faith, the light of the Word brighten your path and the Holy Spirit endue you with more power.
Let there be joy, fun, and laughter always within the walls of your home.
Here’s a little September song to put some pep in your step….Blessings and Peace!
