Every Season

As it is in many parts of the country right now, the canvas of creation around me is covered in a thick wet blanket of white While do I enjoy gazing upon the natural beauty of snow lacing barren tree branches, and icicles dangling from overhangs, I must confess, I am more than ready to embrace the warmth of the sun on my skin, and  behold the sight of fresh flowers in bloom, and birds taking flight.


As I have been  eagerly awaiting the changing of seasons, not only in the physical world around me, but in life, God has been whispering through the chill in the air, and the restlessness of my spirit, "at the appointed time the season will change. But, until then there is reason to rejoice. There is a time for every purpose under heaven." Both in nature and in our lives, winter opens the door  for new life to enter in. God  is working all things together for good, and  making all things new!

May I wait patiently on the Lord, and give thanks in every season that He gives!





Only By His Grace,

Melissa

So true...may we all learn to be content in each season, each moment, exactly where God has us planted....and may our expectation be in Him alone...knowing that He alone can change the season.

Looking expectantly to Spring with you!!!

Much love,
Stacy
