"For everything there is a season..." (Ecclesiastes 3:1). Solomon was certainly right about that! We're all in one season or another. I'm in the peri-menopause, aging parent, teen children, tired of my career season. I'm in a season that is much more demanding for my time and energy than I anticipated.

How about you? What season are you in? Do you feel prepared for it?

I also find I'm more introspective in this season. As I shift to a new stage of adulthood I find I'm more aware of what I'm doing and why. It seems that I am cycling through connection and distance more now. Could be hormones, could be the parenting season. Heck, everyone is blaming Covid for everything, so maybe it's that!

But this means I will be super connected and posting a lot, then I find I am in a quieter season, more prayerful and reflective, while less outwardly communicative. Those times I am posting less and engaging with fewer people. I've struggled against this in the last year. But I recently decided that it's okay. My time of quiet is preparing me for the next season.

So, if I am quiet for a bit, just know I'm building for a stronger time of connection to come. I've got some great ideas and I'm writing my second book. I'm working on some ideas for things to sell here at the website and I'm building on some ideas

for more speaking engagements.

Thanks for your support. Let me know how I can pray for the season YOU are in!
