Are the rest of you winding up your summer activities and getting ready for back to school?  Where did the summer go? 🙂 I’m grateful that it was a fairly mild summer here in north central Ohio and not overwhelmingly hot like it was last year.  There’s always something to be thankful for, isn’t there?  We’re one week closer to the return of Jesus and the end of the age which ushers in God’s Kingdom with Jesus as the ruler of the earth. That’s definitely our blessed hope!
