Here we are with a new season upon us. I go back to work this week, kids go back to school, and fall is right around the corner. I love the cool breeze in the air. God is up to something, let me tell you! New doors of opportunity are opening everywhere! His Spirit is stirring up the Living Water in each of us. Can you feel it yet? I am so excited!  Here are a few inspiring quotes that helped me welcome change:

10 FAMOUS QUOTES ON CHANGE

You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of.

A Time for Everything

There is a time for everything,
    and a season for every activity under the heavens:

   a time to be born and a time to die,
   a time to plant and a time to uproot,

   a time to kill and a time to heal,
   a time to tear down and a time to build,

   a time to weep and a time to laugh,
   a time to mourn and a time to dance,

   a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
   a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,

   a time to search and a time to give up,
   a time to keep and a time to throw away,

    a time to tear and a time to mend,
    a time to be silent and a time to speak,

    a time to love and a time to hate,
    a time for war and a time for peace.

 What do workers gain from their toil?  I have seen the burden God has laid on the human race.  He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.  I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live.  That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil—this is the gift of God.  I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that people will fear him. (Ecclesiastes. 3:1-14 NIV)
