“To every thing there is a season, and a time for every purpose under the heaven:” Ecclesiastes 3:1
It’s hard to believe that just a few days ago it was so warm we had the windows open to cool down the house. Tonight I’m sitting here in my flannel sweats and feeling winter fast approaching.
I’m not a real fan of winter and cold weather. Oh, the little girl in me enjoys a nice snowfall around Christmas, but other than that, I’m not sure I would be upset if winters were milder. Chances of that happening are slim since I live in Michigan, but a girl can always hope!
The older I get, the more difficult it is for me to deal with changes. I’m anticipating some major changes soon in my place of employment. They aren’t bad changes, but nonetheless, they will require adjustments – and sometimes that can be tough.
I firmly believe change comes into our lives for a reason. God knows that we humans need things stirred up every now and then to keep our minds sharp and our hearts open. Without changes, I’m afraid we would become boring, predictable people who never reach out to those around us – and that’s not what God intends for His children. He expects his children to be participators.
So, I’ll pull my winter coat, scarf, woolen hat, gloves, and boots from the back of the closet and prepare to trudge through the coming winter months.
And I’ll remember that if we didn’t have to survive winter’s cold months, perhaps we wouldn’t look forward with such joyous expectation to the coming spring
God’s blessings on you!
“He hath made every thing beautiful in his time:” Ecclesiastes 3:11
