Winding Down and Gearing Up

The lazy(?!) days of summer are winding down in these here parts.
Just switching gears in my brain for the upcoming school year.
Things are gearing up for that.  Welcome Fall!

In light of this transitional time, a break from 
blogging seems to be a wise course of action.

Lord-willing, I'll be back once school is underway 
and we are in a good routine with all things academic.  
Likely, that will be two or three weeks from now.

In the meantime, I'd like to leave you with these
encouraging words from the Holy Bible.

"The LORD is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble;
and He knoweth them that trust in Him."  Nahum 1:7
Are you trusting in Him?  That truly is the only way forward.
Absolutely the only way.

With Love, Camille

Cooler evenings are here. Hopefully the rain late this week will give much relief from the dry conditions in the NW. Scripture you shared is good....God there for us in our weary times and happy times. Forging ahead with Him as my guide. Have a good week, my friend. Thanks for your blog visit. Hugs and prayers!!

Esther said...

Right there with you Friend!! We're getting ready for school here too. Praying all goes well for you and you get a good start to the year. Hope your break is fruitful! :-)

Debbie Harris said...

Yes, Camille, that is the only way to get through life. Praise the Lord, for His Word and the Spirit that we have to guide us in our daily walk of faith.
Blessings to you as you prepare for the school year ahead.

Joy to you!

Thank you for the encouraging words, dear Camille. God's Word is precious! It's hard to believe September is only a week away. My little one and I will begin school {3rd grade} in about three weeks. We are both getting quite excited :)

Love and hugs!

Getting ready for school always used to be the coziest time of year to me. I can remember feeling relief when the end of the school year came (thankful we had made it through another year, and ready for a break), and yet a different sort of relief when it began again. There is something peaceful and quiet about the routine of school with the kids at home, even though the work begins for Mom and kid; perhaps because the hectic summer pace had slowed into a different rhythm. Hope your school year is a special one. I love to think of you there with your sweet family doing life. It is an nice thought in a world that has changed so much. I loved your scripture and I believe it is the only way to make it through these difficult days that we live in. Have a nice blog break and will look forward to seeing you later.
Hugs and Blessings,
