Chapter 7, Page 31, Book 16

Autumn to winter, winter to spring,
Spring into summer, summer into fall--
So rolls the changing year, and so we change;
Motion so swift, we know not that we move.

Dinah Mulock Craik

July 31st - Welcome the opportunities that changes bring

Celebrate each season, for you too, are transformed with the turns of the earth.

Arthur Dobrin

Summer vacations are typically filled with actions like playing, visiting, exploring. Sometimes a change of scenery is just what is needed to recharge our energy. However, not every change is welcomed or expected.

Constant changes happen to us and around us. Rather than meeting them with resistance or discontent, we should try consider them with the joyful expectation of a child.

Change is often rejuvenating, invigoration, fun ... and necessary.

Lynn Povich

As we are challenged by a change, we can consider changes as opportunities for greater potential.

By welcoming change with joy filled expectation and enthusiasm we find a world full of wonderful possibilities. 

The four seasons of nature are a helpful way to recognize that there are profound changes that can come with the seasons of our lives. Recognizing the seasons, honors the changes in our lives. Honoring the seasons, honors the truth that some changes are welcome, and some are not. But to live, is to know change.

facing change is definitely the challenge seniors face. WE do not accept change so well any more. However, I like the little dude on the slide, and at that age change is a wonder.
MY girls screen just changed to a new format, SHE DOES NOT LIKE IT! ;-)

I noticed a change in our weather for the coming week, we will be in the high 90s instead of 100s. Made me think fall will arrive with a bit cooler temps. It will be like this with all the changes of life, just have to adjust best we can.

Joyful expectation of a child? I never considered that!
Makes me wonder ... trying to recall when I came to grow fearful and resistant to change.


Love this, "Sometimes a change of scenery is just what is needed to recharge our energy."
