Summer is my favorite season. Long days, growing things, and birdsong on my morning walk all give me hope and certainty that life goes on as God intends.

This summer I hope you are enjoying a peaceful and productive season. Know that God is with you on the path that you are walking.

Remember every morning is a new beginning and you are free to choose the character of your day.

Be grateful for the beauty all around you and give thanks for every moment of your life.  

Consider the birds that neither sow nor reap, but God feeds them, and He will provide for you too.

Watch for all the evidence of God’s goodness in your life and believe He is there to always care for you.

This summer day I pray you enjoy all the blessings this season has to offer. Know God is with you through every season of the year.

September 1st approaches, the time I always think of as the real New Year. School terms are starting. Church programs begin. We buy fresh clothes, shoes, pencils, and backpacks. We adjust to changing schedules and expectations. Fall is a busy time, a final flurry of activity before the holidays and then settling in for a long winter’s rest.

Each season promises an exciting new beginning. Every new start gives an opportunity to learn and grow. A change in the weather brings a chance for building friendships and exploring ideas.

This September I pray you welcome the new season. I hope you receive the inspiration and experiences to propel you into a time of expansive growth and understanding. Know God is with you always, through every season of your year.

What are you looking forward to this fall? How do you greet the start of a different season?Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinmail
