To Everything There is a Season

I love Autumn-everything about it. The warm days and cool nights. The changing leaves-from green to yellow to orange and red. Sitting by the fire pit under a star-filled sky. Huddling under a blanket on the back patio.

However, I have to be careful not to let the anticipation of winter interfere with my love of fall. Here in northern New England, winter can come early and suddenly. Some years it seems we barely finish summer before we're shoveling out from under piles of snow. This year the locals are already speculating what this winter will bring and when it will arrive. (Most folks are convinced we're in for a “humdinger.”
Overhearing those conversations sometimes makes it hard to live in the moment.
To enjoy the last few balmy days of summer and the glorious, golden days of fall. Sometimes I struggle to live in the moment in other areas of my life because of the anticipation of something. I have to remember that God is in control, and that “to everything there is a season.”

Are you going through a particularly difficult season right now? God is there for you. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding.”
