The last few days I have noticed the trees are starting to change color. Hummingbirds and butterflies are becoming scarce and spiders are everywhere. I guess it is inevitable that summer is ending. 

This has been a season of change in more ways than the weather for me. My friends Beth & Dan Chauncy whose ministry at the Maytown Center brought me to Kentucky, have moved on to the next thing God has planned for them. The Maytown Center has become a part of Merizdo Ministries and even though my day to day participation at the Center had changed a lot over the last two years, my time there is coming to an end also.

There is change in the garden too. Tomatoes are slow to ripen and pepper plants are drying up. Zucchini and summer squash plants are still blooming but the pollinators are few and far between so the beautiful flowers die on the vine. The overnight growth of okra and cucumbers is giving way to the slower growth of cucurbits and greens.

There has been change at the Monastery too. Campbell and Laurie have gone on to what God has for them next too. It has been an adjustment and a time for reflection. I find myself going back to the promises I made almost a year ago. Obedience, Stability and Conversion of Life.

I listen for the voice of God in my community and its leaders. I stay put and persevere through the difficulties. And I change. I become the person God wants me to be. “Receive me O Lord according to Your word and I shall live…”

Blessings on Beth & Dan, on Campbell & Laurie and on those of us who remain. And may we all embrace change.
