What comes to your mind when you think of the word ‘season’? My first thoughts turn to that old song by The Byrds titled “Turn, Turn, Turn”. You know the one I’m referring to, right? The opening verse begins with the familiar words of Eccliastes 3:
“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under Heaven…”
I’ve always loved singing along to it. It always tends to bring memories flooding into my mind…of the different seasons of my life…my childhood, my teenage years, my young married life, having my children, seeing them grow up, and now entering into my fifties. There have indeed been seasons of laughter, weeping, of building up, and plenty of breakdowns. Through every season our dear Heavenly Father has been with my family…His love and tender care has brought us through.
In this month that we celebrate the birth of our Savior let us all take time to remember the reason He came down to us…to save us from our sins and to be alongside us in every season of our lives. And, oh yeah…don’t y’all think it’s not too late for a time of peace in our world?
