That is what I see when I see the turning of the seasons. God working overtime to give life to as many things as He can. Sometimes I wonder if mowing the grass is such a good idea, but maybe He expects us to groom the things he grows. Anyway I look at it, I only see beauty that is given to us, whether we want it or not.
So right now, I am going to enjoy what I see, regardless of the harshness of it. Being retired, I am able to stand on the inside looking out. But come spring, this old man, God willing, will be out there starting to prepare the garden. As the season goes on, I will enjoy the fruits of my labor. But first I have to try and hang on to every day until that time.
So every night as I go to bed, I ask for at least one more day. Enough askings and soon it will be spring, and then I know He will let me get it done.
Life as I know it is like that. You get what you sow. So I will go on with my resting time that the good Lord gives me each day. If he sees fit, come spring, I will be looking for those beams of sunlight coming across that worn out patch of land I have worked all these many years.
Good Lord willing, I will visit with you next week over a hot cup of coffee. Remember there is a reason for the seasons, and we accept what we get each day.
