There’s nothing that makes you stop and realize how quickly time passes as watching little ones grow. My newest niece was born 29 days ago and already she looks and acts like a completely different person than she did in those early days. My experience with other kids reminds me that before I know it, these early days with her will be only a memory and something chronicled in pictures.
On the other hand, this week I had the great blessing of having friends over for dinner. Since they are currently living overseas, I have not had a chance to see them in person in more than 4 years, yet we were able to pick up our conversations as though it was just days ago that we had spoken.
The past month has been a busy one as a result of some of these events. Somehow, even though I no longer head back to school in the Fall (nor have kids I’m sending off) the return to the busy Fall rush always catches me by surprise. Personally, I wish the lazy days of summer happened to coincide with the beautiful weather of the Fall. I am taking a week off in October to take advantage of my favourite season and to get a bit of a break.
I hope you all are feeling refreshed and energized as we enjoy these crisp, gorgeous Fall weather. I’m certainly trying to see the blessing in everyday and trying to avoid getting caught up in the rush of the season (not to mention, trying to get lots of time in with the little people in my life who change oh, so quickly).
A psalm of praise. Of David.
1 [a] I will exalt you, my God the King;
I will praise your name for ever and ever.
2 Every day I will praise you
and extol your name for ever and ever.
3 Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise;
his greatness no one can fathom.
