Despite the heat and humidity, August is a delightful month of sending the children back to school, the teenagers off to college and the graduates to “flight” school of their own. It’s time for us to take a deep breath and regroup. You might want to start by picking up a little book, Living Simply in God’s Abundance by Suzanne Dale Ezell.
This book is a collection of mini-stories–just perfect for sitting down with a cup of your favorite beverage–for the seasons of your life, such as this excerpt from one called “Empty Nest.”
For years I have read a myriad of articles about the empty nest syndrome. Mothers and fathers…waving good-bye…devastated by the empty house. …Now, let me assure you…My three children are precious beyond words. They are cute, funny, smart, successful and a delight to be with. …But it’s time for them to go! …I always liked that verse in the Bible that says, “For this cause, let a man leave his father and his mother…” Leaving is God’s plan.
No matter what stage of life you are swimming through, this refreshing book will give you reason to understand you are not doing life alone. There actually are others who are experiencing what you are experiencing! Pick up this book in the Solid Rock Library now.
