September's Surrender?


Some mourn September’s surrender. They notice leaves in the pool, on the driveway and maybe even some deadheads in the flower boxes.

PORTAL TO HEAVEN: One season, however long or short, leads to another and then back again. There will be a different “youth” or “Spring”… in your step. God made cycles to be completed.

He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!…being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Psalm 103:5 NLT, Philippians 1:6 NIV
