FALL! Submitting is hard especially when it means packing up sandals, beach towels, crusty sunblock tubes and stashing them away until next year. It’s hard because we know what’s coming…schedules, homework, projects, meetings, cold nights accompanied by LOUD crickets. The end of summer usually brings a brush of resentment, “Why does summer always go so fast?” But this September, the pumpkin is already sitting on my outdoor table. Mysteriously, inexplicably– I’m ready to plunge headlong into a new year of teaching, writing and growing into all God has planned. The “beautiful hectic” marks fall and that calls for a commitment to maintaining sacred space amidst the busyness. Carve out time with Him and may your springtime seeds yield a bountiful harvest. See the blog for sacred space ideas. Happy leaf raking!
