Are You Going Through a Season of Change?

Autumn officially arrives on Saturday and the forecast is for more beautiful, warm, sunny weather for the rest of the month. We’ve had such gorgeous weather all summer long! (Our lawns are pretty thirsty, though, with so little rain). Many of us feel rather wistful as we say goodbye to summer and hello to fall.

Like the changing seasons in nature, God has designed our lives to be seasonal, too. We can approach any change with either apprehension or anticipation. Let’s choose anticipation! Embrace it with open arms and see what God will do in this new season of your life.

I hope you had a wonderful summer filled with memories you’ll cherish for years to come, and that autumn brings with it the joy of family, friendships, good health, new learning experiences, and creativity!

“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.”  Ecclesiastes 3:1

Love,
Martha

    I AM in a season of change! My husband and I are empty nesters now. Part of that is great 3 out of 4 of our children are doing well and are out on their own. My youngest son ( one of my adopted 2) had to be "evicted" from our house. He was taking total advantage of us. No rent to be paid, come and go as he wanted . He had no job and was way to comfortable. We told him he had to go . We did not do it in anger but he got very angry and has been that way ever since . I spend time taking care of my mom with altzhiemers who is in a care facility. I check in every three days and do her laundry for her. She is in stage 3 dementia: does not really recognize me but loves when I come to take her out or visit. She is happy and the care staff love her because of it. My first two grand children were born last sept. and last January. I get to see one a lot but not so much the other(being that she is the daughter of my son who is very mad at us. He does not get along with the mom and they are not marriedThank God!) I have been trying to make a relationship with the baby's mom and we are making baby steps. I also work outside the home. I am an elementary school librarian. I work full time as does my husband. He owns and runs his own business here at home. Life is taking on many changes at this point in life it is a changing of seasons.

    Love the 4 seasons and the seasons in my life. My husband and I are grandparents of our one grandson ( who lives in Indiana ) and are blessed to become grandparents two more times in the next few months with another baby boy and baby girl. God is definitely faithful and never ceases to amaze me with his love and protection in my life.

  • The Pumpkin Parable

    Every autumn I'm reminded of this parable when I see a pumpkin: "Being a human being is like being a pumpkin. God lifts you up, takes you in, and washes all the dirt off you. He opens you up, touches you deep inside and scoops out all the yucky stuff-- including the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc.Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts Read More
