I reposted a meme the other day that said, “Someone asked me if I had plans for the fall. It took me a moment to realize they meant autumn and not the collapse of civilization.”

Some days as we look around, we wonder if we are witnessing the collapse of civilization as we know it.  Unfolding around us we have a front seat view of a global pandemic, civil unrest and political chaos.  I’ve had people ask me if I think we might be witnessing not the end of civilization, but the end of the world as we know it.  And my answer is, “I don’t know.”  Which isn’t all that profound, but it’s the truth.

In 1950 Ira Stanphill wrote a song that Allison Krause turned into a hit in 1994, the year Cornerstone was birthed.  And in these days of chaos and confusion I lean into the chorus of that song that says,
“Many things about tomorrow I don't seem to understand
But I know who holds tomorrow and I know who holds my hand.”

And so I have made plans for the fall, and by that I mean Autumn, because my surety is that whatever may happen in the days ahead, I know who holds tomorrow, and I know who holds my hand.

Have a great week and remember: To see what is possible, you’ll have to attempt the impossible.
