Hello, Autumn!

I am happy to say goodbye to this summer. It was long, hot and at its end, brought so much pain and devastation to so many.  My prayer is that those who are hurting from the fury of the hurricanes, fires, flooding, earthquakes, and volcanoes will somehow be able to find hope in the One who never forgets those in need.   

But God will never forget the needy; the hope of the afflicted will never perish.
Psalm 9:18

Hope is what allows the human spirit to survive and revive even in the darkest days. May those sitting now in the devastation that has left them homeless, injured, broken-hearted, mourning for those who died, and wondering where and what they will do, somehow find the Hope that is in Him. 

 We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our help and our shield.
Psalm 33:20
...but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary,
 they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 40:31

May the change of the season bring with it calm and peace and unity and may our hope rest in the Lord.

Please consider making a donation to one of the many verified charities helping with disaster relief in all the areas affected by these disasters.

Psalm 62:6

          Praying for the safety of those fleeing Irma, those who stayed behind, and those brave
 first responders who are standing ready to help all those in need.
May God protect and keep you all.

Autumn Is Just Around the Corner

September is upon us and autumn is just around the corner.  Thinking of autumn leaves, pumpkins, football and all those other lovely things that autumn brings.  In keeping with that mood, a photo from a 2012 trip to Jekyll in early December (the weather change comes later there) is the backdrop for today's inspirational verse from the book of Psalm. 

Have a great day!
