A comfort in trying times

MOORE — The days are getting shorter; the nights a little colder. Autumn leaves cover the lawn like a blanket and a random kite sails through the sky; all reminders of the changing season.

It won’t be long before we pull out our winter coats and store our lawn chairs in the garage for the winter.

Change is inevitable. Some embrace it – others shy away hoping if they ignore it everything will stay the same.

The temperature is 85 degrees as I write this column and I can’t help cherish the last few warm days in the sun before winter snatches our warmth.

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of hot sun soothing your skin, forcing relaxation. But alas, the lazy days of summer are past and fall is here.

It’s so nice to know with all the changes going on around us; one thing is still the same: God’s Love. It’s been here since the beginning of time and it will be with us when we reach that Heavenly Shore. In these changing times – oh what a comforting thought!
