Home. After two weeks of sunshine, salty ocean breezes, squishy sand, & laughter. It feels peculiar, yet also comforting... being torn from the warm hold of summer & dropped right into the coziness of autumn. There is a kind of rightness about it. As sweet & as lovely as summer is, I don't think I could bear it extending all the way into fall. I love September, just as it has always been - chilly, colorful, & shivery with excitement. I love starting the new school year, thinking of the blank pages soon to be filled with words. Most of all though, I love the hope & joy that stirs within me and seems to flow from everything around. The start of this fresh new season of thankfulness & praise, it brings along a sureness, a promise for the future. There will be laughter & there will be tears, but He will always pull us through. And so, the chapter ends & the page is turned. We will never again be able to look upon this summer with fresh eyes, but only revisit it through memories & photographs. And that is as it must be. Let us welcome the months ahead with a cozy sweater & a warm cup of peppermint tea.
Hugs,
