This month has been a time of quite reflection. Even during the hustle of life, the stress of responsibilities, the panic of a flea-scare and the wealth of emotions that come with change, I have been reminded to enjoy the moment. To ask God for the strength to act in a way outside of myself—to lean on His strength and plan, and to allow His Spirit to work in and through me. I cannot control what happens in life, or other people do to or around me but, with the help of God, I can respond with Grace and forgiveness. I can find Him in the quiet, and I can allow Him to love me in the chaos.
Here's to another great month. A month of birthdays (well, mine anyway!); a month of preparation and new beginnings as we begin the new academic year; a month of mentor-ship and counsel as the new XC season begins; a month of love and friendship as we gather together again. Welcome August, I am excited to see what you will bring.
