I just love the changing of seasons. Each one brings its own delights. With autumn comes beautiful colors, crunchy apples, open windows, a yearning for hot soups and stews, soccer games, harvest parties, early nights. I love it all!
This week my college son came home for his fall break! He came loaded down with school books and homework. He returns tomorrow to a week of midterms. Even on the days we had no special plans, it was just good to see him at our table with books spread out during our homeschool hours. Sometimes seeing someone makes you realize even more how much their missed...their silly jokes...their laugh...their voice... You blink and the visit is over... But I am thankful he is happy, that he made the best college choice for him, that he is growing into a fine godly man. As long as we're all on God's path for us, we'll all be just fine.
The *ministry side* of my life has been quite busy with helping my husband and the other leaders with Youth Group and with meeting a few of my girlfriends bi-weekly for Bible Study. It's a good busy, but busy all the same and between that and homeschooling it's taking much of my *thinking energy* away. This explains my quiet blog a bit. But I am getting used to it and expect to be back up to a busy blog in the next week or so.
Time marches on and I try my best to march with it, savoring every delight along the way.
