Can you believe in just 3 short months we will begin journeying through a new planner? I can’t! This year flew by and now that our daughter started her first year of high school, I’m finding myself looking at everything in 3’s. As she experiences all of her firsts in high school, I’m focusing on the fact there are only 3 more Homecoming Dances, only 3 more high school volleyball seasons, only 3 more _________. :-( BUT, then Madelyn and I were on a mama/daughter date and I was telling her how I was feeling and she said, “you should be looking at it as ‘I still GET 3 more dances, 3 more seasons, and 3 more of everything!” Ahhhhhhhh. She was right! I thought of Colossians 3:14 when she said it, “Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony.” I was not “clothing us in love”...I was stripping us of it by worrying away the moment. And then I moved on to verse 15, “Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.” Today I am choosing the peace of Christ to rule in my heart and be thankful for 3 more of everything and cherish the season God has me in.

I pray this verse will be your daily reminder this month to clothe yourselves in love and set aside the things that are stripping you of the peace of Jesus!
