The Passing of Seasons

If I could freeze the Autumn season to admire the beautiful scenery just DSC02974a bit longer I would. Winds and rain grab a hold of those precious leaves and they are gone until the next fall season.

The clock ticks at the same speed each and every day as does the calendar year with each passing month.

Ecclesiastes 3: 1, 4, 6: Everything on earth has its own time and its own season…for crying and laughing, weeping and dancing…there is a time for finding and losing.


For a number of autumn seasons it was as Solomon wrote in Ecclesiastes; for crying, weeping and losing. My ex-husband not only left that season but it was also our anniversary month.


How can I still love this season with so many negative memories? God is the Healer. For not only did Solomon say it was for weeping, it was also for laughing, dancing and finding.


DSC01738As each autumn season arrived, I continued to celebrate my process of healing and find inner joy as a single mom. With God’s help, I chose to love life not hate it. I was married for 12 years then alone for another 12 before God blessed me with Bill. Life was a struggle and I cannot deny that. Autumn would arrive once again. While I admired the changing leaves and pumpkins nestled in the fields, I also celebrated the fact I was not the same person as 11 months before. Why? My heart was changing just as the leaves on the tree because I asked God to lead. He knew best.


King Solomon also says, I know the best thing we can do is to always enjoy life. (vs 12)


I took Solomon’s advice. God and I walked together through the Autumn season learning to laugh, dance, and find who I was.
