One thing that is always a constant is change. Change sometimes is painful. Change sometimes is beautiful. Change allows space for life, for survival and for hope.
For some, change causes anxiety and fear, as it is the closing of a door to allow the opening of another.
One thing I love about living in Georgia is because it has four distinct seasons. There is a time for each season to show off its beauty. However, in order for each season to arrive, it means that another season has to go away. Change in seasons is beautiful. Each seasons shines in it’s own way.
Also, what I love is that each seasons contains so many beautiful elements. The elements dont compete with each other. No element is better than the other, but they all work in perfect harmony with each other. Everything is beautiful.
How can we learn from nature? What lessons are we missing?
Standard Version (ESV)
A Time for Everything
3 For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
2 a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; 3 a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; 4 a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; 5 a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 6 a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; 7 a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; 8 a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.
Family, we can do this. We can live, love and work together. For indeed, everything and everyone is beautiful.
