It's going to be a sunny day
May not seem like much, but just ten days ago, it snowed here in Michigan. Growing up in Arizona, I did not understand the changing of the seasons. In my third spring in Michigan, I love the changing of the seasons. It helps you understand the circle of life. If you are constantly in one season, you might not get it. You begin to appreciate the wonderfulness of sunshine.
As I look out my window today, the birds are back. Robin Redbreast is in my yard. I see blue jays (they are mean birds) and cardinals and our ducks are back. Every year at this time, a duck couple comes and eats at our neighbor's bird feeder. Pretty soon they will bring their babies. I love it. The grass is beginning to pop and the trees are beginning to leaf. It makes you feel wonderful and gives you hope after a long, long winter.
Sometimes life is the same. Your life may be in a season of winter and you cannot see the Spring coming. Just remember, spring always comes, even if it is snowing in April. God is with us in the winter and the spring and the summer and the fall. He never leaves us. If you are in a season of winter, know that spring is just around the corner. Ask God into your troubles to get clarity and vision about what is going on.
So, what season are you in today? Bountiful harvest of fall. The newness of Spring. The fullness of summer. Or are you struggling in the bleakness of winter? Remember it is just one season. We have all had different seasons in different times. Rejoice, your next season is just around the corner.
God bless you and yours.
