Wednesday Word

Now that we are on this side of Labor Day, is it safe to say that summer is over?  I know there are still 2 more weeks till the autumnal equinox, but I also know that there are only 3 more weeks till The Dixie Classic Fair!  We are somewhere between weekly lawn mowings and long days ahead with rakes and leaf-blowers.

For some, it was an exciting summer:  beach trips, lake days, mission trips, weddings, graduations (& transitions into college).  For others, things were perhaps not so festive: heartache, loss, tough times, even disaster.  Many are somewhere in between – not the summer of their dreams, but could have been a whole lot worse.

For all of us a new season awaits.  Cooler days, football games, hay rides and even Back To School means much in my family now in its’ fifth generation of teachers.  What awaits – is a season of harvest.  No matter how trying the past, a cyclical future of promise is ahead.

“As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.”   Genesis 8:22

Yes, the days, weeks, months, seasons and years go by faster and faster.  Yet, in those moments we choose to sow the seeds, provide the nutrients of encouragement and shine a ray of hope.

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”  Galatians 6:9
