Changing Seasons

I typically love the change of seasons, Spring and that freshness of putting in new plants, Summer, those smells, like coconut sunscreen and afternoon rain. Then Fall, the sometimes , lower humid mornings, a little crisper air and the leaves changing and dropping.

I focus especially on Fall now and have an overwhelming awareness of a major change happening in my life right now. I am in the midst of looking at Colleges for my daughter Sophie. A changing Season that I want to say I am embracing, but it’s feeling like fall to me, where she’s changing- she’s moving away . I know I’m supposed to Celebrate these changes now as Fall brings in a new Season.

It is truly bittersweet- I honestly am  happy to see her get excited  about her future path.  So many decisions, so many applications, Test Prep – Essays , my girl handling it all so amazingly and maturely . Watching her embrace the challenge like a rock-star, dropping those high-school hang ups and looking forward to a whole new world of experiences!

I selfishly cling to my time with her now , not knowing what the future is going to look like for either of us, but I am so grateful that I know who holds the future.

Maybe you are going through a changing season and you don’t know what comes next? What gives you hope? What scripture do you turn to?

Psalm 25:5
“Lead me by your truth and teach me, for You are the God who saves me. All day long I put my Hope in You.”
