take heart.

The tell-tale signs are there.

Here, in the Northeast, the vibrant greens are slowly fading. A heavy dew clings to spent flowers.  And at night, there is a slight chill in the air.

Our lives are like that. We have seasons that begin and end. Seasons of calm and seasons of unrest.

What season are you in? Are you in a restful place of summer sunsets by the ocean? Or are you feeling desolate like a dreary, winter day?

Remember, seasons always end. But a new one is about to begin! Yes, even the cold winter sparkles.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed, distraught, or lonely, take heart. It won’t last forever.
