Today is the last day of summer on the calendar and tomorrow will be the first day of autumn. Yesterday we had 100f/38c and today we will be at 70f/21c. The rest of the week will be nice and cool in the mornings and perfect weather in the afternoons. Almost like clockwork, our weather is following the change of seasons, well at least for the next three days.
Fall is my favorite season of the year with the cooler temperatures, college football-America football, the leaves changing color later next month, and Thanksgiving Day. Fall brings the two changes I welcome with the temperature and the leaves.
Change is a constant in life and is unavoidable. Some changes are welcomed like getting an increase in pay, having a new baby, making a new friend. Some changes are not welcomed like a diagnosis from a doctor, the loss of a job, financial problems.
The greatest constant in life that I am so very grateful for is Jesus. He is the great I AM the eternally present Son of God. Hebrews 13:8 says:
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
Whatever changes come in life, positive or negative, we can look to Jesus, who never changes, to anchor us in this life. We can look to him in good times and bad times knowing he is always with us and at work in our lives.
Tomorrow I will celebrate the first day of fall by drinking a cup of coffee, black coffee, at the coffee shop. I will leave the pumpkin spice lattes to the sugar addicts. 🙂
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
