There are seasons in our lives, and the seasons change. One of my seasons changed last May. From a season of good health to a season of pain, physical deficiency and risk. I had a stroke that severely affected my right side, but fortunately not my brain. That it did not was a blessing.
Some physical disabilities can be reversed, mitigated or compensated for, but brain disfunctions are much harder to deal with successfully. To allow a mind to remain intact in a changing season is indeed one of God’s blessings, and the change of seasons itself serves God’s purposes in giving direction in our lives.
As I rehabilitate, upon reflection, I know that God gave me a setback, a new season in my life that will change me for His purposes; and that, at the same time, He gave me an immeasurable blessing.
It may not feel like it, but it is almost fall. Some of the trees are beginning to turn color. The oak trees are shedding tiny little acorns. Leaves have begun falling too, and the sunshine has taken on a late summer golden hue. We are all ready for a change in season, and Terry McCotter, Renee Midyette, Juanita Arrington, and Tricia Johnston (all ladies of The Blossoms) were out at the church adding a little “fall color” to our building. What a welcome greeting our church family will receive Sunday morning when they arrive to worship. Thank you ladies!
Sunday, September 12, 2021 we begin Bible Quest. Watch the above video for an introduction to the first week’s reading. This will be followed by Bible Study on the next Sunday, September 19 in Roger Bennett’s class. Currently we have 27 people who wish to participate either on-line or in person. We hope this will be a blessing to all.
