Two Weeks Ago….

Two Weeks Ago

Tonight I am sitting on my back porch in a long sleeve tee-shirt and sweat pants. Two weeks ago I had on the ceiling fan and shorts with a tank.

Two weeks ago it seemed to be getting dark around 8:45 p.m. It is now 7:31 p.m. and almost completely dark.

I use to really not like this change.

Not that I like the thought of an impending winter. I am one who truly prefers summer and the warm temperatures that come with it. Seriously. I love a bonfire…but I’d rather have a summer night where I don’t have to cozy up to flames that could cause me a third degree burn if I am not careful.

But alas, seasons change. The older I get the quicker they seem to come and go.

And I am not just talking in the physical sense.


Two weeks ago I was a mom of toddlers,  I homeschooled my children, I taught in the public schools, I sold videos, purses, makeup;  I wrote for a magazine, I was a mother of the groom, I was helping rebuild my house, I had surgery,  I worked for a boutique….two weeks ago.

I have had another “season change”. I have worked at a sweet clothing and gift boutique for eighteen months. I really enjoyed my part-time job there and hated to resign. But alas, this ‘ole earth suit is causing me a bit of grief, so in order to go as long as possible without surgery, I had to stop climbing the stairs and sitting for extended periods of time.

But I also have returned to the CCM radio station that I was at 14 years ago. The Lord spoke to my heart when I left and I knew I would be back someday. I am back at a place that I knew would someday be a part of my life again. I cannot believe it has already been seven months!

“For everything there is a season, and a

So yes, seasons change…and I think I am learning to just go with it. I can complain, worry, fret or just rest in the day-to-day. I can enjoy the beautiful weather now or worry about the most likely six inches of snow in February!

A day at a time is the best way to live our lives. Resting in His life..present in ours. I am learning to quit trying to figure it all out and just go with it. Living this life out is actually kind of exciting!

Tomorrow I will just wear layers and take off the jacket when it gets too warm. And I am not even going to think about sweater weather!

After all…. in two weeks it will be summer again!

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 59 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer and author... who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 43 years, married 40 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. AND...we became grandparents to a beautiful baby girl in 2018!! We also have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. My heart's desire is to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, He is ever present. ~Be Encouraged Today~
