Summer is ending, which is blowing my mind! It has just gone way too fast. I’m trying to suck the marrow out of these last few days of sunshine and fun and freedom before we start again with the routine and the slowly creeping cold.
But Fall brings lovely things too, I know.
As we kick off the school year, this is what I am clinging to: “The God of all grace,” wrote St. Peter, “who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast (1 Peter 5:10).”
My prayer for you this year, for my kids as they start new things, and for myself as I navigate a world of no-more-all-day-pajamas (I have to put on pants now, sad.), is that each of us find the God of all grace here.
Restoring us; making us firm, strong, and steadfast.
And, as always, may you live without shame – in whatever season you find yourself.
