It's mid-November, it has been snowing which is my indicator winter is here already. UGH, I do not like winter. But it also means the end of a term is fast on its way.

Actually, the term ends on the official start of winter December 21st. It in many ways seems like this term just began. UGH, I do not like having time just evaporate as if it never was. Reminds me of James 4:14 "yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes."

The terms as well are just a midst but I pray they harvest eternal fruit.

Thanks for your prayer support.

To Him be the glory!
