Well, today is the last day of summer and tomorrow we quietly slide into fall. For a while, I’ve noticed the change in weather even though today, the last day of summer, was a day in the low 80s as I chilled, relaxed and watched fave shows on Netflix while enjoying a nice lasagna soup with cornbread and checking SEA-Bronco Games scores (go ‘Hawks! Sorry, I do live near Seattle and I have had connections to the Seahawks over the years!) Yet even as we celebrate with a ‘Hawks victory and the last day of summer, the season continues to change to autumn.
With the change of seasons, the change in weather is noticeable especially at night with a bit of chill in the air though we have yet to turn on the heaters…probably soon since we wake up to a chill in the apartment. No fun when taking morning showers!
With the change of seasons, things will get hectic over the next few months with holidays like Halloween and Thanksgiving before sliding into winter and its holidays like Christmas (yes, I’m already planning for this holiday but I will enjoy the first two before celebrating Christmas).
With the change of seasons, life has been crazy around here with my class on Prophets, which will end soon and I start up a new one on World Religions. Wow! Time goes by quickly when having fun in a great class!
With the change of seasons, life is getting crazier as we prepare for more tests and another procedure with my husband. Even I am dealing with a few health issues; yet I know God is in control. And, He has our life and our health in His hands.
Finally, with the change of seasons, I must realize the following according to Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 (NIV) There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace
1) With the change of seasons, are there any changes that you are going through?
2) Are you at peace with the changes? Or do you sense turmoil? Or something else?
3) Have you taken the turmoil or something else to God in prayer?
