Summer's over
A fresh voice


I did an hour bike ride this morning and it was delightful. Fall is coming, the winds of political change are coming, and Hanna is coming.  4 years ago, I was a DINK (double-income-no-kids) and now I am a mother of two.  15 months ago, I lived in New York City, ordered groceries online, and didn't own a car. We cannot escape change.  It is going to happen. I'd like to say that I handle change well all the time, but that would not be true. There are seasons of my life I wish had not changed.  There are things about the present I do not want to change (like the age of my kids). There are things about the future that I cannot wait to change. My prayer today? to be confident through change. I love this quote...

"Change has a considerable psychological impact on the human mind.  To the fearful, it is threatening because it means that things may get worse.  To the hopeful, it is encouraging because things may get better.  To the confident, it is inspiring because the challenge exists to make things better."  - King Whitney Jr.

How do you handle change?
