What Season is it?

Over the past few weeks the passage from Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 has kept coming to my mind. There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under heaven. Boy over the past few weeks I have been reading and rereading this passage it is like comfort food for the soul. While I been reading it memories of the first time I had to recite it at Sunday school and then when I had to memorize it for school in the 7th grade. I know that everyone has their favorite passages in the Bible and I must say that this one of mine. When life happens as it seems to do this passage pops in my head. It just amazes me how something that was written hundreds of years ago still applies to life today.

Over the past few weeks tears have flown followed by laughter. Then thoughts that mourning was in the future followed by rejoicing occurred. We had times that silence was for the best and then when speaking was a blessing again. As I watched my children acting like adults and handling things with such grace and maturity. It is moments I know that I did something right. My heart was breaking the whole time because I was wanting the days back when I could kiss their boo boos and making them better, If that didn't work I could scoop them up in my arms and hug away the pain.

Seasons come and Seasons go but one thing is for sure that if you are in a hard season an easier one is on the way. Just remember THERE IS A TIME FOR EVERYTHING AND A SEASON FOR EVERY ACTIVITY UNDER HEAVEN!

Michelle, I am SO happy to hear you finding the positive in all challenges you have been asked to face lately - I'm right there with you, girl! I really believe we can find something positive in just about everything that occurs, even if it is just a lesson. I like your words _ "if you are in a hard season an easier one is on the way" - I think you could make some ART with that! Hugs and good vibes to you!
