“Continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.” (Colossians 2:6-7) Dear Friends of CAPCC,
Every year it surprises me. The drifts of snow, which by the end of February seem to be permanent fixtures—more like concrete than frozen flakes—start to lose their staying power. By March (hopefully), they begin to diminish, and the first signs of Spring appear. The first robin I see on a walk through the trees is a signal that the long months of winter are over. And though it happens every year, the change of the season with its new growth and new life brings joyful surprise.
What a gift God gives in the changing of seasons! The winter was long and challenging but Spring is a time for new possibilities. Spring always reminds us that the perseverance of the winter months were worthwhile and the strength and resilience we’ve built over time will serve us well in the future.
We learn these lessons not only from the changing seasons but from our clients as well. Since I wrote you last, our clients have blessed and amazed us. We hear stories all the time of women, men and families who overcome challenges, bravely endure, and courageously embrace change for the better. And as a result they grow and they thrive.
"I’m more independent now that I’m out of my toxic relationship. I feel more safe. Now I’m excited for my son to be born."
~Thankful CAPCC Client
