As I reflect on the season’s thus far this year I am so enchanted with how our Heavenly Father truly clothes each day with gifts of beauty for us to simply enjoy!
In upper Michigan where I live our winter was mild compared to the two before it; Spring was to my great delight was a real Spring this year!
I love Spring and Fall and it seems in recent years I have not had the experience of the season’s being gradual the way I prefer them.
To me Spring should be that time where you are realizing some days you do not have to wear all the lovely warm clothes of real winter’s but it is not time to put them away just yet.
And May in Manistee was truly magnificent; as the April showers had allowed our lovely Spring to turn the earth green. Preparing to slip into Summer.
Just as God my Heavenly Father has allowed me to live where I may enjoy the season’s outdoors He also is teaching me ever so gently to navigate so many changes in my life and the lives of those around me.
The magnificent aging process I long ago learned you can fight it or you can choose to refuge with Lord Jesus and pray He showers you with grace to navigate the changes.
Our sufferings bring acceptance, acceptance brings hope: and our hope will not deceive us, for the Holy Spirit has been poured into our hearts. It is through the same Spirit that we pray:
– Stay with us, Lord, as we sojourn toward our heavenly home with You.
Help us to realize that our troubles are slight and short-lived; they are as nothing compared with the joy we shall have when we reach our home with You Lord Jesus! Amen.
Blessed are you, Father,
Lord of heaven and earth,
for revealing the mysteries of the kingdom
to mere children. Alleluia! Mt11:25
Please consider sharing a season in your life with us in the comments; We love hearing your thoughts!
