When Seasons Change
Writing this post is a sign of a new season coming, for I am a person who plans ahead, edits ... writing impromptu for five minutes is a clear sign of a new season blowing through ...
To embrace motherhood means to embrace seasons, for in mothering we are constantly changing seasons. Seasons of expectancy, carrying dreams for our child within. The sweet seasons of caring for our newborns. Then the carefree days of toddlers, pre-schoolers, full of wonder and fun. The coming seasons of elementary years, and then teen years all carry their own storms and times of adventure.
And then there are all the weather changes within the seasons ... for me, they have included an overseas trip for six weeks, with five children in tow ... many days in hospitals, for leukemia, appendicitis, bone marrow transplant, terrible accident husband was in.
When seasons change, and they always do ... there is One who never changes. The One who made the seasons, and the One who promises always to be with us.
So much more to write ... I didn't even touch on the "empty nest" season I am in now. But my 5 minutes is up! And I will not go back and edit anything ...
