Hello Fall. You're kind of early, aren't you?
Or on Sept 10th.
Yeah. It's 49º right now.
The leaves are still green as are my tomatoes.
I will still choose joy because being bummed by how things should be is
really a bad way to go.
So many things we don't have any control over.
So on a cold September day I will not fret.
I will let it go.
I'll drop that expectation in the river and watch it float away.
And I will think of Elisabeth Elliot and Amy Carmichael and remember the phrase that has come to mean so much to me.
"In acceptance lieth peace."
Do you all give yourselves pep talks?
I do it constantly.
Encourage one another,
