The Last Sunday of August

Shirley Plantation

We are beginning to feel a hint of Fall in the air, a relief to the humid heat of South Carolina.  One year has passed since we moved into our home and my feelings are all over the place today.  I love our new city and the friendships we are establishing, but I miss terribly those friends and family we left behind.

A Pastor prayed for me this past week and in his prayer he said there is no looking back at what once was but to keep looking forward to what lies ahead.  God has a plan for us that is yet to unfold.  I’m waiting and listening in the stillness today.

I hope you’ll take a moment to enjoy Sunday’s stillness too.
