Seasons Change

fall-leavesI was driving down Lantern Road yesterday and was struck by the beauty of the colorful trees. 

As much as I love to admire crimson and mustard leaves, they serve as a reminder of the changing seasons.  The breeze suddenly has a chill to it.  The sun goes to sleep earlier.  The fields become crisp. 

Seasons change.  One season gives birth to another, and so the cycle continues. 

Have you ever thought about your life having seasons? 

My childhood could be characterized as a season of wonder.  Junior high was a painful time of change and confusion.  High school sparked a period of determination.  College brought a season of spiritual, relational, and intellectual growth.  Marriage was a time of pure endurance.  This is my season to be single. 

Seasons Change is a song by Ray Boltz that I grew up listening to.  The chorus says, Seasons change. Barren fields will bloom again.  Seasons change.  Gentle rains will fall.  Seasons change.  Better days will come and then, you will find the blessing is worth the pain.  So just believe and let the seasons change.

If you’re in a season that may not be pleasant right now, hang on… because time will soon bring something new.  People come in and out of our lives; unexpected blessings surprise us. 

Life is never stagnant.  That’s the beauty of it.  Just believe and let the seasons change

“Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are His. He changes times and seasons…” -Daniel 2:20-21

  1. Each season has its own unique beauty, doesn’t it? I feel this way when folks mention children growing up – our daughters are ten, and each “season” has had its joyful and frustrating moments, but I love experiencing what comes next and wouldn’t wish my way backwards. I’m glad we live in a part of the country that DOES have seasonal change – palm trees may be nice, but the beauty of maple and oak in the autumn just can’t be beat. 🙂 (and winter does have its own beauty, but my favorite part is the anticipation of spring!)

  2. I DO appreciate seasons, but I could do without winter!
