...all things pertaining to the warmth and coziness of home

New Season, New Reason!


Today begins a new season.
I do prefer the warmth of the sun, summer evening walks, flip-flops, and ice cream cones.
But, we can't stop time.
So the best thing to do is to embrace the beauty of each season.
While I don't like the cooler weather, I do enjoy the coziness of being inside, curling up with a good book, baking, and seeing the glow of lit candles.
Seasons are part of God's creation.
Each season is special and unique for the season that is coming next.
That's how it is in our journey here on earth. We all go through seasons in our life.
Some we prefer more than others, but each season we go through, prepares us for the next season in our life.
The passage in Ecclesiastes 3 is the most famous for this.
 
To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven:
A time to be born,
    And a time to die;
A time to plant,
    And a time to pluck what is planted;
A time to kill,
    And a time to heal;
A time to break down,
    And a time to build up;
A time to weep,
    And a time to laugh;
A time to mourn,
    And a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones,
    And a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace,
    And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to gain,
    And a time to lose;
A time to keep,
    And a time to throw away;
A time to tear,
    And a time to sew;
A time to keep silence,
    And a time to speak;
A time to love,
    And a time to hate;
A time of war,
    And a time of peace.

Enjoy the Fall season and be thankful for the season of life that you are walking in today. There is a reason for it!

Blessings, Diane
