Seasons Come And Seasons Go




     The leaves are swirling to the ground once again. Missouri is clothed in her finest as her rolling hills are beginning to change their colors. This year has come and gone in a split second. My Brian is loving his position with the Jefferson City Public Schools and I am finding my way as the Women's Ministry Director at Concord Baptist Church.(My~ the lessons I have gleaned but that is for another time.)

  We have settled into our empty nest but loving "us" time, serving in our church which we absolutely love and blossoming in our new roles where God has called us to serve. God has been so very good to us. The kids are all doing well but I sure miss them. Maybe that is the only thing I would change~ at the moment~ if I could.

      I find myself reflecting at this time of year more than I usually do. We can have it all just not at the same time. I have missed my time blogging and my blog friends. This time in life has found me busier than I have ever been~ only in a new way.  Having a job that allows me to spend my days serving God and serving the women of my church has been a dream come true...something I have been preparing for my entire life.

     Just as the leaves are falling to the ground and the air will soon turn from a warm breeze into a cold nip in the air~ our lives change. Our lives pass by just as the seasons come and go. I never would have dreamed when I was home and homeschooling my children that I would have moved to a new city and God would have placed me right here. Not in a million years would I have thought I would have landed here. But if I were honest~ this is more than I could have asked God to give me.

    What matters most is that we stop and live in the season we find ourselves... because as we all know the seasons pass us by quickly.  I pray this beautiful season finds you happy and prosperous.

 

Psalm 1

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

I just came back to Blogger and wrote about a new season of my life. God is so faithful! It's good to come back here and reconnect with all the blogging friends I've made over the years! I'm happy for your new season :)

Have a blessed week!
