Does September Smile at You?


It looks like a classic back-to-school moment. A few weeks in and she’s still smiling.

The waning of summer bridges two seasons and beckons us to enjoy both. Whether school, work, retirement or something else, we are always going back to school in one sense or the other.

What does a little schoolgirl’s smile say to us…right where we are in life? Summer’s last laugh or Autumn’s first?

PORTAL TO HEAVEN: September speaks of the split identity that many of us carry around. The summer represents the leisurely part while the fall commands us to get back to work. And then there are some who by their very nature enjoy work as pleasure and leisure as a very serious business.

Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. Genesis 1:31 NKJV
