Happy Transition Day


So what is today for you?

Is it the last day of summer

A day off from work

The day before school begins

or

113 Days until Christmas?

Personally, I don't like this day,

because everything changes.

Pumpkins replace Buckets and Shovels

Bathing suits turn into Sweaters

Barefoot is covered by Ugg boots

Baseball is now Football

Bikes become School buses.

I don't know why I am so weepy,

as I write that last line

I guess because it takes me back

to the past

to not only when I was a child

enjoying summer days and nights,

but to the days when my children

where little children~

because they were all home

and they were free to just play

to just enjoy.

Oh to be a child again.

Today represents to me that

Time keeps a ticking~

as my oldest child

has her oldest child now

and will soon have her second.

Time keeps a ticking

even though the sun still shines

and the ocean waves crash

and the temperatures will remain in the 70s,

for most of the month.

Labor Day Monday

is a

transitional day,

but not for this rebellious child

because

I am a summer person

through and through

and will not pack away my flip flops~

even though I will continue

to be in transition~

as will you~

because as

Time keeps a ticking

He

transitions us

when

Peace replaces Anxiety~

"Cast all your anxiety on him because He cares for you." I Peter 5:7-9

Trust overcomes Doubt~

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths." Proverbs 3:5-6

Love overrides Fear~

"For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity,

but of power, love, and self-discipline." 2 Timothy 1:7

Therefore

Let's make Today

the best

Transition Day Ever

by keeping our eyes on the

One

who never changes

but

Changes us~

"So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen,

since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." II Corinthians 4:18
