September: it’s the time of year for new beginnings, new starts and fresh vision! At Paraclete our sales year runs from September through August, so we are listening and praying about new ideas as we begin again. I always find starting over difficult, especially after the completion of a long project or pushing towards a goal. I’d like to take a break, but God always seems to have another plan, a new horizon to keep our creative juices flowing, and to keep us at the edge of what we can do in our own strength, and drawing us towards him! A portion of our grape vineyard grows right outside of our window – this time of year the color of the grapes deepens each day – a reminder of the circle of new life and harvest.
