There is a season for all

To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven. A time to be born, and a time to die; A time to plant, and a time to pluck what is planted….Ecclesiastes 3:1,2

This weekend the clocks are jumping forward; the birds are singing and doing flirtatious leaps on tree branches, telephone wires, and other perches with songs sounding full of excitement and joy. The temperatures are creeping up into the 70s this week in eastern NC, the sun is climbing higher in the skies and showing off its brightness for longer minutes each day….Spring has sprung!!

That of course, is not to say there may not be gray or rainy days, the temperatures may dip rudely back into COLD, and the winds may arrogantly remind us of chills which feel as though they seep beneath one’s skin to cause the bones to ache.   That’s spring!

But I love the days as they get longer, more sunshine and daylight. It frees me from my self-imposed hibernation. I want to be out in the air, looking at all the things freed after a winter—trees budding, flowers poking up, flirtatious birds doing silly acrobatics in their enthusiastic manner, and the sun sitting higher in the sky.

But each of the seasons has its own specialness. The summer has long, hot days, possible beach times, cookouts, but more sunshine; the fall has harvest, mums, pumpkins, cooler yet shorter days; the winter brings days with less sunshine, colder temps, and for me, a time of almost hibernating. And after a few weeks of winter, spring starts poking through with the gradual increase of sunshine, warmer temps, and the poking through of flowers. The birds seem to sing louder, hopping about in search of worms and bugs. So I appreciate the fact there is a time for to grow, a time harvest…..

I hope you are able to look about and enjoy what is important to you in each of the seasons.
