The daylight hours are dwindling and the nights have crispness to them. As summer comes to an end we have started the process of cleaning and packing up our trailer in preparation for the winterizing that will soon take place.
There are a few more weeks before this will become necessary but a new, busy fall season beckons us to other things. There is very little time left this season for us to enjoy our summer get-away.
Am I sad that this time is coming to an end? No, instead I am thankful for the long walks, playing in the pool with grandchildren, making s’mores over a campfire and the memories made.
The seasons of life are ever changing. As one comes to an end, a new one begins. This is such a good reminder to me to enjoy what I have at this moment. Once today is gone it will never come back again.
On the same note, I can’t rush a new season. My life will unfold one day at a time.
The Bible tells us there is a season for everything. I need to remember this and thank God for the season I am in right now. Each one is a precious gift.
For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven. (Ecclesiastes 3:1 NLT)
