Transitions: 40 Days & Nights

The winner of The Mistress of Tall Acre is Jean Bean! 


The next forty days hold a lot of transitions.
We started with my daughter's graduation from Taylor University, then moved her and my son home from college. Apart from mounds of laundry and the crazy dynamics of having young adults moving back to the empty nest, we are in the midst of the last five weeks of planning our son's wedding.
At the end of the forty days, right after the wedding, my daughter takes off for two months of internship in Dublin, Ireland. My husband and I are excited to visit here there in July. 
There is much to celebrate, and good adjustments to come. 

My favorite Psalm of all seems good for the days of change:

Psalm 46

God is our refuge and strength,
    an ever-present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
    and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam
    and the mountains quake with their surging.[c]
4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
    the holy place where the Most High dwells.
5 God is within her, she will not fall;
    God will help her at break of day.
6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
    he lifts his voice, the earth melts.
7 The Lord Almighty is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our fortress.
8 Come and see what the Lord has done,
    the desolations he has brought on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease
    to the ends of the earth.
He breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
    he burns the shields[d] with fire.
10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
    I will be exalted among the nations,
    I will be exalted in the earth.”
11 The Lord Almighty is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our fortress.
