When Seasons Change:
One of my favorite times of year is during the seasonal change...especially when summer turns to fall. The air smells cleaner, the leaves turn the most amazing shades of red, orange, and yellow, and it reminds me of that wonderful time of year almost 3 years ago now that Jared and I made a covenant before the Lord and all our friends and family to love and honor each other all our lives long.
Last week we were in California for Jesse's (Jared's best friend) wedding. As we went through the process of helping with all those fun details that can not be done until the last minute, I was reminded of all the changes that have occurred in our lives since our own special day---it is amazing how much our love has grown! Last night we were up late just talking about if we are "normal" because we love to spend every moment possible together! (really, we would spend all day every day together if we could)
As I look ahead at all the new seasons of life we will continue to go through, the thing I am most concerned about is if I am continually growing and changing in my character, in who God wants me to be. I so desperately want my life to make a meaningful difference for God's kingdom--in the big and little things. So as the seasons do change---so should my heart.
So my prayer this season's change...Lord change my heart. Transform my soul. Make me into something new today. Make my heart like Yours.
