Backyard Fall Bloom

For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13


A little less than two months are left in the year and a chance to revisit the “to do” list for what we wanted to accomplish in 2013. Most of us have a list whether it is written down or if we have kept a running mental tally in our head. My list had an itemized outline about how I was going to move forward in my health, relationships, career and my spiritual life. Some things I was able to check off while others still remain prominently on the list. So at the 11th hour or in the 11th month, I review the list to see what is still doable. I have some work to do. Maybe you have a few items left on your list too. Thankfully if there are not things we can fully accomplish, there may be a way to move it to the next level. Maybe we can do the research for the project we wanted to start or maybe you can find out what it really takes to enroll in the class we wanted to take. It might be a good time to reach out to a loved one for reconciliation that should not drag on into the next year. We can ask God for the strength and direction to move where He is leading. I am so thankful for God’s blessings. He provides mercy and grace and the opportunity to move things forward. Thankfully, there is a little more time for the “to do” list for this year.
