Seasons Change

In the weather world, meteorologist say the month of September is a fight between summer and fall. Some days the weather is hot and sunny and then there are other days when its cloudy and cool. As humans we too sometimes have that fight within ourselves trying to decide if we are going to believe what God says or those around us who may say that we are not smart or good enough.

In this life we all will have storms that may make us stumble or ones that will literally knock you on your ass. Yet it is in those times that we really find out what we are made of. Ron and I had a home built about ten months before he passed. Now mind you neither of us expected his sudden passing but the day we got our home we dreamed of all of these things we'd be able to do with family and friends. So to only get to see him enjoy those moments for such a brief time has been hard. However when I look back on pictures and reminisce with friends about him being outside on the grill and cracking jokes, it makes me smile. That man had such a zest for life that you wanted to be around him. His laugh and loving spirit couldn't help but rub off on you.

As I sat today preparing to sign documents to sell what was to be our dream home, I had a fight within myself wondering if I was making the right decision. I mean this home was to be our legacy to our kids, grandkids and generations to come and now I'm throwing it away. Throughout this whole process I'd been asking God to make something fall through so the sale couldn't happen but in the end His will be done. You see sometimes we try to hold onto things or even people that are keeping us from reaching the next destination God has for us, and as hard as its been the past few weeks packing and remembering moments I know this is the best move towards my continued growth.

A few weeks ago my friend Oliver told me "Sis, you can't outrun grief, it's a process that must be dealt with and no matter where you try to relocate to it will be there. You just have to stop fighting it and grow through it. Just know that happiness is coming and you have friends that are here for you."

Life will not always be rosy, but every morning that God wakes you up is a new day for you to give thanks and smell the roses. Father God I thank you for the new season that's coming and I trust that you will guide me in the right direction. Peace and Blessings.
