It’s that time of year. We are rounding out to the end of summer. Only a few weeks left before kids head back to school, routines change, pools close, and the weather begins to shift.
I love this time of year. Although I know New Years Day is traditionally for goals and resolutions, the fall always feels like a clean start for me. It’s the memories of fresh notebooks and pencils, class schedules, and school calendars floating in the back of my mind. But this year it feels different.
How are you hanging in there, friend? This summer flew by fast for our family. We had a big move, trips, work, and all the typical things that come with summer (read: full of energy children). My summer feels like I barely dipped my toe in the pool and now the water is gone. I am mourning the missed season and the changeover. But, like I am telling myself, I am telling you – we’ve got time.
There are sixteen days until my kids start school and I am going to practice a few pieces of intention in the meantime. Want to join me? Here there are:
Summer is drawing to an end and a new season is about to begin. Take the opportunity to give it purpose, intention, and meaning. Lay it before the Lord as you consider this time and recognize His presence with you as you finish your summer season.
