As the summer slowly transitions into autumn, school has begun for the children, teachers, administrators, and other support personnel in Philadelphia’s public school system.  

There is much to consider as you prepare for these changes — changes of seasons, and of daily routines, like getting your children up and ready for school each morning. If you are a teacher or educator, you are going back to classes and getting back into your grind. Although the things that are around us tend to be gloomier today than they have ever been before, hold on — a change is coming!  

Hold on to who you are and to your thoughts and the things that you hope to see and want to experience. When the news isn’t encouraging, and your neighbor keeps parking in your parking space, even though it’s right in front of your home, or your friends turn their backs on you when things take place in your life that they cannot handle because it’s too much for them, all I can say is, hold on — a change is coming!  

It is the will of God to see you through all of your challenges and personal losses.  Many of us, including myself, have been faced with death. The death of a loved one, the death of friends’ loved ones. Then we have some folks who are taking care of their families or loved ones who are not doing too well, knowing that death may be their outcome.

Yeah, there is a lot going on, y’all — a lot going on, and there seems to be more happening today than yesterday.  

But still, I’ve got to say, hold on — a change is coming!  Keep your eye on that prize that is in front of you, and hold onto your faith, because it is your faith that is going to allow you to get through these trying times. It is your faith that is going to carry you to the points and places that God has prepared for you. 

Hold on — a change is coming!  The skies will be blue, and the air will be cool and crisp this fall as life continues to unfold for you and brings changes — both good and bad. Some things in life are not even in your control — and in my opinion, I would say that most things in your life are not in your control. It is up to you to continue to do the work so that you can get to those places.

 Again, I say, hold on — a change is coming!  Yes, hold that head up high, smile, and be ready, because a change is coming!  Be sure that you are in line so that you can gravitate towards what that change is and be able to grasp and take it with you wherever you are going in your life today.  Hold on, audience, because a change is coming!  Until next time…PEACE!
