Seasonal times in our lives

I’m so glad that you’re joining me for this new blog series. Just a reminder that this series is focusing on different parts of Ecclesiastes 3:1-8!

“What is your favorite outdoor temperature and why?” asked the leader at a women’s meeting. As the women answered, they connected their favorite temperature to the season they like most. There were a lot of women who loved summer most, which is interesting because we live in a northern, cooler climate!

My answer; Autumn! I do love each of the seasons for their own special blessings, but autumn is the one that I have always loved most. I have always loved the colors of the trees, the sound of leaves as they scuttle across the sidewalks, the crisp air that makes you want to drink soup again, wear long sleeves, and sit by a fire. I also love that autumn has a feeling of beginning; school starts again, church programs get going, etc. A rhythm seems to hit our household with activities and new challenges.

“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die;a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted” Ecclesiastes 3:1-2

In this verse I’m reminded that there is a purpose for our seasons, the seasons of our weather change and the seasons of our lives.

Questions to consider:

  • What is your favorite season?
  • Which of God’s creations do you love most in that season?
  • Which season of life are you in; a time of learning, growing, maturing, etc.?
