A month of doors and windows wide open!

With summer in full bloom, August, for me, will always feel like a month with its door wide open. As the curtains at the window lift in the warm summer breeze now, a butterfly drifts into the room after alighting momentarily on a flowering shrub in the garden.

As August 2009 approached, our only son, Michael, was looking forward to the wide open spaces of God’s Grace. He was to begin his first year at music school and, after working for a year to financially support that plan, the clock on his bedroom wall seemed to tick ever-closer to his future. Mike passed away on August 1st, 50 days in sight of his dream.

And so my Daily Breadcrumbs for August will cover the last books of the Old Testament…. Hope after the Storm. Hope in the things to come.
