Season of Life

Another season is upon us
and we have been blessed with
the many signs of springtime recently...

Blossoms opening...
birds singing...
breezes filled with the smell
of new beginnings...

Though I love each season,
there is something special about spring.
Where the things of creation that have been sleeping
are awakened and produce new life.

It makes me ponder the many ways
that the seasons of creation
parallel the seasons of life.

And just as in creation,
the season of winter in my life
is never void of beauty...
but it can sometimes seem
long, cold, barren, and lonely.

And that is when the next season
is anticipated with a greater longing.

I look forward to spring...
the beauty... the cheer...
the fresh breath of life
and all things new.

Thank you, Abba,
for the seasons of your creation...
for the seasons of life.

Thank you for the life You give
and for making all things new.

"Therefore if any man be in {Messiah} Christ,
he is a new creature:
old things are passed away;
behold, all things are become new."
2 Corinthians 5:17

I too, am so ready for spring. I know that God gives us the seasons for a reason. A time of rest but I am ready to get my garden in and dig in the dirt.
