NOOOO!! Say it is not so!  This is way too early!  We are not ready for school and for college!

It seems as if summer just got started and we are already talking about going back to school.   

I really am old school; I think school should start the first Tuesday after Labor Day.

The life lesson is very simple; here comes the calendar, ready or not!

We have to get ready on Sunday evening so we can jump up and go to work and school on Monday.  We make plans for Christmas and Thanksgiving.  They are all on our calendar.  Ready or not, we have appointments to keep.  We can dread April 15, but tax day shows up.  Don’t forget birthdays.  Yes, they keep coming, even if you are “39” or “49” and holding!

The truth is that back to school is just a step towards our ultimate joy, seeing Jesus.  It is a tiny reminder on our calendar of life.  We have an appointment to keep.

If you have children or grandchildren you have heard about what the children need to start school.  It is clothes, shoes, backpacks, school supplies and more.

Church family, they also need our extra love, our calm assurances over the new school year and our prayers!  Don’t forget prayers and compassion for the teachers.

Celebrate back to school with your Trinity Family as we pray the new school year off to a great start!

You are loved,

Pastor Ralph
