The changing of seasons has to be one of God’s greatest blessings. Think about it, every three months, we get to embrace a new season. From the bone chilling cold of winter comes spring with its melodic sound of birds, vibrant and colorful flowers, and the sweet taste of strawberries. From the lazy days of summer comes the cool, crisp air of fall and the mouth-watering meals of turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie.
Fall is a season for giving thanks and new beginnings. New clothes, new teachers, new things to learn, and new things to do. What ever happened last season is over and new opportunities await. As your oldest child begins 3rd grade and your baby starts school, you wonder where time has gone and how did they grow up so quickly. It’s also a time for you to consider this new season of you. I love Ecclesiastes 3. It reminds us that for everything there is a season.
A time to plant and a time to harvest. A time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to grieve and a time to dance. A time to embrace and a time to turn away. A time to search and a time to quit searching. A time to keep and a time to throw away. A time to tear and a time to mend. A time to be quiet and a time to speak.
What season of life are you in? Should you become involved with other women by joining a Bible study or being involved in Moms Together? As the leaves transform from brilliant green, to radiant red, and vibrant yellow what changes do you want to take place in your life during this season? Do you want your family to be more organized this school year? Is one of your goals to have dinner as a family, around the table? Do you desire less running around and more being around? While you are packing lunches, buying clothes and getting the kids ready for a new school year, please know that God is with you through every season of life and that you are never alone. There are moms who feel what you feel and want to share life experiences with you.
