October Sounds

October Sounds

Here is your October Sounds!

Fall is here, and I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite thing about coming into Fall is having a somewhat consistent schedule again. While the Summer brings some fun and unique adventures in my life, there is something about having a plan that makes me feel more at peace… I don’t struggle with control at all… 

As we move into the holiday season, it seems our time is more scheduled out than any other time of the year – traditions and holidays that have been set for years will guide us through the rest of the season. We know exactly what is coming, and plenty of time to plan, I mean we have been doing the same holidays for years now. And yet, something always ends up happening, a flat tire, a storm, a fight, a headache, a sickness, shipping delays, and even death. We are reminded often that although we may develop a routine, make plans for months to come, we are not in control, but we can have faith that our God who loves us is.

The heart of man plans his way,
    but the Lord establishes his steps.
/ / Proverbs 16:9

Whatever your plans are this season, and whatever comes your way to shake those plans up, I hope you can have peace knowing it is our Lord who establishes us, in our steps, in our faith, and in His promises. Blessings on your month!
