Today, I'm happy to be a part of the book blog tour for A Symphony of Seasons, written by my e-friend, Connie Arnold.
Seasons of Life
Some days we feel depressed and blue,
Not knowing what we are going to do,
Struggling just to get through the day,
Wondering why life must be this way.
Do you ever feel this way? I imagine most of us have felt at one time or another that life is a struggle, and we don’t know what we should do. Yet often things will turn around, and we will have days when things seem to go right and we enjoy life again.
These ups and downs of life are a bit like the seasons. Throughout our lives we will encounter change time after time and need to learn to find the joy and beauty of life again in our new circumstances.
For the ups and downs we face there are reasons,
Like nature, our lives also have seasons.
In autumn the leaves fall, leaving the trees looking lifeless and bare. Have you experienced that sluggish, exposed feeling in your life? Or as winter turns cold and icy, have you ever felt like you have a cold, frozen heart?
But, oh, the joy when spring returns with new life and beauty abounding! It is certainly a season of hope and renewal, and God brings this season into our lives as well, filling us with hope, renewed vigor and joy.
As summer brings warmth, sunshine and usually increased opportunities for relaxation and fun, the Son’s light shines into our lives bringing warmth to our cold hearts and joy to our lifeless existence.
In good times and bad, it’s increasingly clear
Every life has its seasons through each passing year.
May God bless you through each season of the year and all seasons of your life!
