On July 28, 2015 I experienced a shift in seasons. My husband of 14 years transition to be with the Lord. He was not only my husband but my best friend. Today I reflect on our life together. The vacations, the movies, the trips, the laughter,and the smiles. This indeed was one of the most pleasant journeys of my life.
I can remember growing up in a Christian home with a loving family. I did well in school and attended college. During my early adult years,I was married, had children then I experienced a shift in seasons when my marriage ended in divorce.
So Far I believe I have experienced three most memorable seasonal shifts. My birth and up upbringing, My school days, My failed marriage and the latest season of loss. As I reflect upon the 57 years I have been on this earth, I am grateful that my good seasons seem to outweigh the bad ones. I am ever grateful even for the difficult seasons because there were lessons learned through that. I am grateful for the joyful seasons because I learned lessons there also.
Through each season in life there are lessons to be learned –whether it’s the season you’re on top of the world or the season where you feel loss and sorrow. There is still lessons to be learned.
As I move forward to my new season I am so grateful for this past season. Grateful for the experiences and grateful for the lessons learned. I am beginning to look forward to my next season. I don’t know what that season holds but I do know who holds my hand as I go through that season and that one is God. May God be with you through whatever season you’re experiencing with the knowledge that because we live in this life, our seasons are not permanent. Each season will change. May you be prepared for your season by God and go through the season with God.
