The other morning as I went to take the garbage out, I instantly noticed a coolness to the morning air which had not been there just a few days ago. My wife and I were also talking about how much earlier it was getting dark now. Fall was in full swing!
Ecclesiastes 3:1 “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the sun”
I tend to love the summer months the most, though I must admit at times the heat here in Vegas does get to me. People tend to get out more in the summer months, they tend to visit the parks more often when the weather is nice and they tend to have lots of get-togethers in the summer months to mention a few.
Yet by the time fall arrives, most of us are ready for a change. The clothes we wear in the fall and winter months are much different than what we wear in the summer months.
If one happens to have a fireplace, it’s very cozy to sit by the fire as you bundle up to keep warm. The cold breezes are a welcomed change compared to the hot winds we get in the summer.
Holiday’s, like Thanksgiving and Christmas, come in the fall and winter seasons and most everyone loves the holidays. In normal times, people tend to get together for the holidays and celebrate.
We live in a world of changes. There isn’t a person who would disagree when I say 2020 has been a year of many changes; changes we didn’t see coming nor did we want to see come.
At the start of every New Year, people come with much hope and anticipation of the many good and wonderful things which will take place in that New Year in their lives and the lives of those they love.
2020 began like every other New Year before. Hopes of a bright and successful year was on the hearts of every person. Yet, just three months into 2020, Coronavirus hit our city, nation and world and what a curve ball that has been for many.
Lives have been lost, jobs have also been lost. Fear and hopelessness has settled in the hearts of many and it just seems to be getting worse as the days and months go by.
Psalm 1 speaks about the blessed man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked; or stand in the way of sinners or sits in the seat of mockers. His delight is in the law of the Lord and he meditates on that law day and night.
Psalm 1:3 “He (blessed man) is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season, and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers”
In the middle of these very dark and uncertain times in 2020, our son and daughter in law, gave birth to the most beautiful, wonderful granddaughter we could ever imagine into the life of our family.
To think our first grandchild ‘little ‘Vivi’ arrived in the most darkest times we have seen in our city, nation and world just goes to show how gracious and wonderful our Lord really is.
Our dear granddaughter is so precious and life changing not only to our son and daughter in law, but also to us and our ‘Consuegros’ in San Diego!
When we as believers delight ourselves in the las of the Lord and meditate on it day and night, we will yield fruit in whatever season we may be facing in life.
Where do find yourself planted my friend in the difficult times we are currently in? If it’s not in the law of the Lord, then maybe you need to transplant yourself where you need to be so you will not miss the good fruit, in this season!
