I’ve been trying to figure out why this summer has such a different feel from the rest of the year.
Obvious answers: the oppressive heat, no school, lots of sunlight, swimming, beaches, cookouts.
Not so obvious answers: Bible studies and small groups are taking breaks, lots of kids everywhere you go, no traffic filling the streets from the local elementary and middle schools.
We aren’t really taking a vacation this summer. I’ve gone swimming a whopping three times since May. And I’m a grown-up (in age, at least), so I don’t go to school. SO why does it matter that the summer is flying by if it holds no real changes in my life?
It think just means that life in general is moving forward at a very rapid pace. Friends are entering new seasons of life and I continue to try and figure out where I fit in during all the transitions. Can you identify?

This week we are talking about finding contentment even in the midst of the ever-changing seasons of our lives and relationships. I hope you’ll join in on the conversation.
