Change as a Constant

For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland. Isaiah 43:7

This is where we stand today.  School starts in about a week.  Job situations are in flux.

I’ll be unemployed after next week.  The final public hearing for the shelter is scheduled for September 15.   I can hardly believe it, after working on the project for 2 years and nearly 9 months.  It will take awhile to get my head around that fact.  Meanwhile, the newly created full-time position at the city I applied for and hoped to interview for got cut in the budget reorg.  Such is life. Things change.

Zac will start his sophomore year of online schooling September 3. Eek! Ruby starts 3rd grade the same day.

I’ve done 5 loads of laundry.  The sixth load rotates in the dryer as I type. I’ve folded all I’ve washed so far.  At least clean laundry remains a regular need in the universe.

I’m filled with anticipation and a little bit of dread.  How will this new year go?  What challenges will we confront?

I don’t know.  I can’t see into the future. My personal crystal ball looks cloudy today. As the Magic 8 Ball would say :  Try again later. But know the one who makes paths in the desert. He holds the future.
