It was a Season for Love

Love cards for Mom

It’s always a season for love but I couldn’t resist capturing these beautiful flowers which were part of a Valentine’s Day bouquet presented to a group of awesome ladies. Unfortunately, each woman is suffering from Dementia or Alzheimer’s. This means that she may not even have understood the significance of the flowers. Yet we are sure they all appreciated the beauty of God’s amazing nature – collected just for them in a vase of love.

Do you feel God’s love around you whenever you embrace nature whether it be in a vase of flowers or a simple walk in the woods? Share your story while enjoying this amazing double rainbow which hugged the sky one Sunday morning on the way to church and thanks for visiting!

This IS your season!

In season living

Mangoes soon to be in season judging from the blossoms covering this tree 🙂

“Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the LORD, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither — whatever they do prospers.” 
Psalm 1:1-3 (NIV)

“The Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of His bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all of the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none.”

Deuteronomy 28:12 (NIV)

My granny had a favourite saying: “Everything for a season child, everything for a season.” Are you familiar with these words? They simply mean nothing lasts forever … because obviously everything on earth is but for a season. It doesn’t matter whether it’s hardship or pleasure, good times or bad: it’s going to come to an end.

So today, we want to consciously be thankful for the seasons God has provided. We are not going to give up or complain or whine about where we are in our lives because this is the season we are supposed to be in – right now and right here. We will stand tall and be a beacon of hope for others. We will be patient in our testing so we can invite others to share in our awesome testimony. We will hold on to God’s promises and endure the journey as we wait on the Lord because OUR GOD IS A BIG GOD!

Thinking of you … in this season.
