About Rachel

"Come now, and let us reason together," says the Lord, "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword"; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken." Isaiah 1:18-20

  1. My favorite thing about fall is hot chocolate:)
    I also really love the motivation that fall brings to get out of that summer routine, get organized and make things happen.

    1. Hehe, YES!! Hot chocolate season is fantastic, isn’t it?!! :) Thank you for commenting/entering Faith!!

  2. I love the beautiful autumn leaves and cool temps and vivid blue skies. So wonderful! I can’t wait to see all your trip pictures. ????

  3. A few of my favorite autumn things…time with family, fall spices, and outdoor adventures in the crisp, cool air! This is my absolute favorite season…makes me want to giggle and shout for joy!

    1. Isn’t the cooler weather so nice?! Loving the cool mornings myself. :) Thank you for commenting & entering my give-away!!

  4. Living in AZ definitely makes me appreciate the cooler weather that fall brings! And being able to drink coffee without having to stand in front of the AC in order to not overheat ;) Thank you for this awesome giveaway!

  5. My favorite things about fall are…well, as I recently told my Grandmother – “We (I meant me) chubby girls like cool weather.”

    But my most favorite thing about Fall (and Winter) is the depiction of God undoing or humbling us.

    When we are in “Spring” or “Summer” – when we stand in all of our glory (which is from Him), let’s be honest, it’s sometimes easy to forget Him.

    And when we do… God in His great love and mercy brings us back to the end of ourselves and leads us to the Rock that is higher than we are. He does so gently and tenderly — and even beautifully! Through the changing of the color of our leaves…that slowly fall away, until we stand bare before our Maker. Though it’s painful to be exposed to the raw elements of the coming Winter…we may “count it all joy” KNOWING that the LORD will again clothe us with His tender mercies and love anew, as we continue to “forget what lies behind and strain forward to what lies ahead, pressing on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” <3


    1. Hah, well… I think the love for cooler weather is mutual for both the thick and thin! ;)

      Amen. :) That is beautiful and encouraging! Thank you Rebekah! And we can trust the great work of undoing and humbling by our Lord and Savior, even when bare and broken, knowing He does all things well[Mark 7:37] and His abundant promises are true[2 Cor 1:20]. He will complete that good work He is doing in us[Phil 1:6 ] and is conforming us to the glorious image of His Son[2 Cor 3:18, Rom 8:28-29]! <3

      Thank you for commenting and entering!! :) <3

  6. Yes, autumn weather is a welcome change from the summer heat! I can’t choose between apple cider and scarves, wood fires and good books, or the crisp air and change of the leaves!

  7. O yes, cooler weather and I can’t just pick one thing. Fall gardening in Texas with all the lovely lettuces, spinach, and snow peas that grow so well this time of year. Praise Lord for changes in seasons.

    1. I’ve been enjoying the “brisk” evenings these past few days. Isn’t it wonderful that we can practically garden all year in our area?!! :D Praise the Lord indeed! Thank you for leaving a comment/entering Rachel! So good to hear from you. :) :)

  8. Oh I absolutely love everything about fall, but my top favorites would be the perfect weather, yummy baked goodies, and getting to wear fall clothes!

    1. Isn’t it sooooo fun to bake during fall??! I am convinced everything tastes 150% better baked in cold weather. ;) Thank you so much for commenting/entering Krista!! :)

  9. Hi, I love reading your blog, and my favorite part about fall is the cool weather and seating in the couch with a warm blanket while sipping a delicious hot cocoa or coffee. <3

  10. I love the special crisp feeling in the air. I don’t consider it being fall until it comes. Which sometimes takes awhile in Texas!

    Also, I prefer fall gardening above spring. It’s so nice for it to get cooler as the garden matures instead of hotter! The veggies seem to like it better, as they don’t wilt so easily but stay crisp.

    1. Yes!!! I’m still wearing sandals in the middle of October. ???? We’ve noticed Fall really doesn’t come to Texas until nearly December! But when it does, it’s pretty grand! :)

      Oh! I agree. Our spinach and lettuces are definitely more flavorful and not bitter during the fall season compared to the spring growing! Not as much of a chance for them to bolt!! Loved receiving your comment. Thank you for entering!! ????

    1. I was enjoying a cold nighttime walk myself last night. So beautiful!!! ???????? Thank you for the comment and entering!!!!!

  11. Ooooh! So many incredible, lovely goodies!!!! ????
    My favorite thing about Fall is the invigorating, bright, brilliant crisp coldness in the air… Makes one feel more alive and oh so adventurous… and when one gets home from the adventure (be it as small as taking a longer walk!), the air makes one savor a warm cup of tea or mug of hot chocolate like 100x more than normal…

    1. Love the fresh crisp air too!! It was 48 degrees during my morning walk. I felt like skipping! ???????? Thank you for entering/commenting!!!

    1. Mmmm… now I am reeeaaally feeling like a mug of cocoa!! :) :) Thank you for commenting/entering Katelyn!! <3

  12. Lovely!! Some fall favorites- warm drinks, cozy layers of sweaters + scarves, and so many good memories from 2 years ago of getting married + traveling out west in the fall!

  13. What a fun, fun giveaway! It looks like a put together a delightful “essentials” parcel.

    It’s a pleasure to be commenting. Your blog is a continual source of encouragement, refreshment and smiles.

    Let’s see…Autumn holds many sweet changes: scarves, sweaters, boots, hot drinks, cinnamon, pumpkin, ginger and happy kitchen creating.
    God’s creation is certainly one part of the season that stands out in my mind. The lovely colors of the plants and trees, cold weather veggies and nippy air are some of my favorites. Maybe my most favorite is the warm, rich sunshine and deep blue sky.

    Thanks so much for hosting, Rachel!
