Encouraging Hearts & Home Blog Hop 8.31.17


How do you feel about change? I’m not crazy about it. I rather like having my days predictable. It’s stressful to step into new situations and meet new people. Yet, change can be a good thing. Like the changing of the seasons. I’m grateful to my God who chose to give us four seasons and I’m enjoying these days that are giving me a taste of the Autumn season that is just around the corner. I hope you’ll find encouragement and inspiration this week at our Encouraging Hearts & Home Blog Hop to deal with whatever change and transition may be happening in your life this week.ย  Posts like last week’s most viewed entry — No Bitterness in the Wait – Embracing the Aging Dream from Michele Morin. I love her thoughts on change as we age and her discussion on facing dreams we hold on to.
