Sneezing my way into the change of seasons.
Yes–it’s that time of year again when I have a head stuffed with more than words and ideas. In fact, it is so stuffed, I can barely think this week–let alone write.
So, I thought I’d peruse some of my post drafts to see if there was something I might, with little effort, turn to inspiration for a reading public this week. I found the following post I’d created for a link-up that no longer exists, and I never published, two years ago this month. PERFECT!
Not only is it reflecting on summer changing to fall, but the memes capture the teachings I gleaned from the LYFE Conference I attended in June of 2014. Much remains the same since then–especially my fits of sneezing as summer fades to fall. But, much has changed since then, too, besides the seasons.
I may have trouble breathing this week–but as I learned from these lessons, I shall INHALE God’s Grace and EXHALE the world’s stresses. That will be breath enough for my bones–with lovely landscapes as a backdrop, making for a picturesque set of inspirational notecards to encourage you today, too!
Our keynote speaker at that retreat was Christie Lothamer, missionary to the UK. She encapsulated four part teaching sessions with these four leading ideas. I summarized her teachings in my post HERE. The conference was the start of a life changing summer for me at that time. God was calling me into a new season where my faith would be tested as I stepped up to the threshold of a long latent dream–to independently publish my first book.
What an encouraging gift of note-cards they would be packaged up nicely. Perhaps I’ll publish these as a sideline, too!
There seems to be a lot happening, in our nation and our world of late, that takes our breath away. These changes have nothing to do with seasonal sneezing fits.
We are depleted. We are weary. Our heads are stuffed–we’re dazed and confused.
Remembering that God is above all these traumatic world-changing ailments, and that He is GREAT, GOOD, GLORIOUS, and GRACIOUS, is a healing shot of Vitamin C to my spiritual system.
With a tissue box by my side and my hands raised to the sky, I’m breathing again. All will be well.
