“That the generation to come might know them, the children who would be born,
that they may arise and declare them to their children,” Psalm 78:6
For most of us, at least those whose lives are impacted by the schedules of children, the beginning of a new school year has sent shock waves into what was, for a season, a peaceful lifestyle. With the end of July came the beginning of school. For some, this hit like a tsunami as the milestone years of kindergarten, middle school, high school, or college crashed upon them. For others, it was yet another wave whose push and pull reminded them that, like the ocean, change is relentless. Whether you are a parent, a grandparent, or a teacher, the beginning of another school year may find you revisiting the shoreline of time and noticing, with the passage of another year, the increased change in the landscape.
