there is a season ...

Image hosted by TinyPic.com


there is a season for everything under heaven ... here in our part of the world, the fishing season opens on Saturday ... and working on the weekends begins for me as well ...

i will meet many happy fishermen, towing their boats, on my trek to the salt mines in the park ... this is the day they have been waiting for all winter ...

this also reminds me of Ecclesiastes 3, where we are told that there is an appointed season for all activity in our lives ... we shouldn't be sad when one season ends and another begins ... it is all part of Gods plan for us ...

Leo used to be an avid fisherman ... the last sport left that he could actually partake in ... he had to leave many other sports on the shelf because of his chronic pain ... he still enjoys going out fishing, but he waits for more comfortable weather and for his body to be feeling "well enough" ...

it looks like another season in our life may be over ... i'm not sad as i type this ... and neither is Leo sad ... it just means that there will be a new season beginning ...

if you read
Ecclesiastes 3, you may see what season you are in ... all seasons are blessed, if Jesus is there with you ...

Leo and I seem to have things in common. We both like fishing, but only when the weather cooperates.
I had never really thought much about the seasons of our lives, but so true. Thank you for sharing and making me think
