Goodbye Summer

Joy-Anna's birthday cake

In many ways I am sad about the closing of another summer. I am quite melancholy, I suppose. I always think things like, "we will never see summer 2011 again. Yep, there's only one summer of 2011". Then I look back and reflect. I suppose in a way I should be happy for the closing of the season. While I do love summer and am a true summer girl at heart, this summer seemed so cruel. Sometimes each of us have struggles in so many ways that no one knows of and no one could understand. Only Jesus can truly understand. He does and He's there to listen. Now, if only I could always remember that. It's a fault I find in myself each and every time. To remember. Praise God that He is more faithful than I. He is One that is taken for granted in all of our lives. He never leaves and never forsakes but thankfully some seasons do. While to me each winter always seems quite cruel in many ways, I hope for this fall and winter to be kinder in other ways. So, here's to the new fall season! Fall of 2011. I pray for it to be a good one so when I am white headed I can say, "yes, I remember the fall of 2011 and it was a good one!".
