Hello Dear Friends! I hope everyone enjoyed a time of rest and relaxation over Labor Day. It happens to be one of my favorite weekends! I love the fact that we all feel permission to kick back and do absolutely nothing if we so choose. It’s a time to “be still.”
That’s what I like best about summer. It’s a season when there seems to be less pressure than usual with time for getaways, outdoor concerts, visiting with friends, family re-unions, etc. Personally, I get more reading done in the summer than ever, which is something I truly love to do but never seem to have enough time for.
As the season comes to a close I want to remind us all to hold on to the feeling of being refreshed. As much as I love autumn and look forward to the winter holidays ahead, I also know it’s a season filled with events and deadlines. There are demands on our time and tasks to perform that can quickly rob us of the joy we experienced only a moment ago.
My hope for you is that as the seasons change and the possible pressures begin to loom, you will think on the God of Peace who holds your days in His hands and that you will make time to “be still”.
“Be still and know that I am God” Psalm 46:10
