Changing Seasons

God is such a wonderful craftsman in everything and I just want to touch on one of His great pieces of craftsmanship today and that is, the seasons. Seasons on earth and seasons of "man".

In summer we have warm (sometimes hot) temperatures to bronze our bodies, play in Gods extremely large playground called "nature" where we enjoy hiking in the mountains, swimming in His oceans and lakes, picnicing in meadows and so on.

Then comes Fall and in His glorious painting we see warm colors of red, brown, yellow and green in the turning of the leaves. We store away our summer clothes and bring out the warm heavier clothes. Children pile up those leaves into mounds only to jump and dive into. The wind becomes brisk and the days are shortened. We give thanks and begin planning for all the winter festivities and the birth of our Lord and Savior.

Winter is upon us in the blink of an eye and after all the excitement and hype of Christmas is over, the rest of winter seems to linger for what seems to be an eternity. It probably is a really good thing that we have so many festivities going on during the winter other wise we would almost for certain... go stir crazy, being couped up inside day after day.

Finally, Spring comes with new life all around us. Beautiful blooming flowers and trees, green fields and babies, babies from every creation of God!
As in the seasons of the earth, man also has seasons. From birth/childhood (summer), teen years (fall), adulthood/old age (winter) and finally new life (spring) in heaven! I for one, am looking forward to "my spring".

I pray the the Lord Blesses you all now and welcomes you with open arms in the spring of your life.
