Today is the last day of Summer. At least according to the calendar hanging on my wall. Friday the 23rd is the first day of Autumn. That seems to be a little later than usual to me. It seems to usually fall on the 21st or so; but not in 2011 I guess.
It is raining again. Thank the Lord of all grace and mercy and love. It is wonderful how He loves us all. It seems to me that rain is a reminder of His love, grace and mercy and our need.
It will not be long and we will all be longing for those warm, even hot Summer days; at least I know I will. I must admit some of these past Summer days were extremely hot; but that is Summer.
It is great to be alive. It is great to have family and friends whom I love and who loves me. It is even greater still to know that there is a God in Heaven who also lives within me, because He loves me and cares for every need. All because of the gift of His Son Jesus – His death on the cross, burial and resurrection; and knowing that one day soon He will return. O, What a day that will be…
Thanks for the rain.
