Summer is in full effect.
It's HOT in this little corner of the world.
But it's not slowed us down.

Football season is here! Drake practices 4 days a week.
Brant will soon begin his football season as well.
This season has caused some minor health issues for Aubree that have slowed her down just a little.
  I am totally enjoying this season where she is still sleeping in our bed in her Bob & Larry socks..

Karli has entered a new season with NO MORE BRACES!

This is football season, 
and summer dance workshops season. 
It's asthma season
and a photo shoot to celebrate no more braces season.
It's family vacation season.
And let's enjoy the last few weeks of no school season.

For everything there is a season.
Things break-
like the a/c in the automobile,
or the clothes dryer,
or your heart 
or his spirit
or her will.

But just like there is a time to tear down
don't forget that there will be a time to build up
and repair what's been broken.
There will be a season of rest
and blessing.

Life is a constant cycle of change.
Plenty and want.
Ease and difficulty.
Comfort and pain.

It all serves a higher purpose.
So be present in your season.
Seek God in thankfulness and worship,
Guidance and wisdom.
Trusting always in the bigger picture,
though it's not always visible with the human eye.

Right now, my kids are in a season of
learning to value each other.
I am trying to instill a priority of kind spirits towards
each other at all times.
The lesson is hard learned
but well worth it in the end.

I am in a season of trusting myself.
Learning that I am enough.
Trying to apply wisdom in every area of my life.

What season are you in?

"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace." Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
