Fall is here, just look and see
The changing colors on each tree,
Feel the slight nip in the air,
And know that God has put it there

So let’s be ready, wait eagerly
For the time when Jesus’ face we’ll see.

Thought for the Week
“Perceive that your current circumstances really are a training opportunity, so expect to be trained. If you just want to avoid that, you can, but you will just end up nowhere. You will never get beyond this place into a place of maturity.”
-- Graham Cook (via Alex).
