Pastor Patricia’s Pauses

The days are getting shorter, the nights are getting cooler. Soon schools will either be opening in person or online. Our lives continue.

As I think about the Fall, I am always excited for the season. I am ready for the days to be cooler and the leaves to change, although I do not look forward to the snow.

At our house, we will be entering into a season of “empty nesters”. With our twins off to college, my husband and I will have a quieter home. I love quiet. Certainly, there will be less dishes to wash and less mess to pick up! Children are great, but there comes a time for them to fly on their own and see the world. Now is that time in our home.

Lately, I have been thinking about when they were young. On Facebook, it flashes up memories from years gone by. I remember them going off to preschool, then kindergarten. It seemed like such big transitions for them. Now they are moving away. We always seem to tell those parents of younger children to treasure those years as they fly by. But in the moment of those years it seems that they will never end.

What transitions are happening in your life? Is it time to reevaluate where you have been and where you are going? What is the next step?

Or, are we comforted to know that those transition times are not as frequent as they have been? Perhaps we are content to just enter Fall as the next season, but our lives do not really change.

I pray for you all often and I want you to know that my door is always open if you need to share with someone how your life is changing. Change is inevitable. Some of us do it with more grace than others!
