(Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. 8 Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. 9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. ” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. ---2 Corinthians 12:7-10)

As we wind down this summer & look ahead to school, I am so grateful for this slower pace we've enjoyed. It's given me a chance to believe that we don't have to live in the "fast lane" to have a full life - a lesson for which I am extremely grateful.
