I must admit the political chaos of recent weeks has me daydreaming for the serenity we enjoyed on our Octoberfest Brewery Tour. We did a lot of slow-paced beach time, both on Lake Michigan and Lake Superior, and there’s nothing more calming than the ebb and flow of waves washing over the sand.
We came upon this idyllic scene while hiking the Sleeping Bear Dunes, near Traverse City, Michigan. Such a simple formation, isn’t it? A few stones balancing one upon the other. While the rest of the world was arguing over who belongs where and whose individual rights are more important, these four stones quietly supported one another amid a strong lakefront breeze.
Support Enables Balance
Author Thomas Merton said “Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance, order, rhythm and harmony.” This thought can also be applied to success, whether it’s success of a business or a non-profit organization. For that, we need to work together. We need to support one another.
In thankfulness for all my clients do for me, November is the month I pass it forward. Each year Adunate accepts two pro bono projects for greatly reduced or no cost. These are projects I strongly support and believe will positively impact God’s creation, his people, or his ministry.
My interests include, but aren’t limited to:
- Agriculture & Animals
- Food & Drink
My deadline for submissions is December 31, 2016. I will let applicants know of my decision in January.
