SEASONS AND TIMES
In all our lives - there are Seasons and Times
Some memorable - some we choose to forget .
Some - like lead - sit heavily in our hearts .
While some touch like feathers - softly - fleeting -
Whispers of a moment savoured - cherished - gone -
Others come and go - like perfume wafting on the breeze
Like the fragrant smell - of honeysuckle in the evening air
Or wood fires - Sunday roasts - roses .
Moments of inner peace -and calm -
Like twilight sunbeams kissing our cheeks .
Soft music - invading our senses -
Or blackbirds and robins singing their praises to God
Melodies that touch the heart-strings -
And bring a tear to our eyes .
Laughter - happiness of loved ones - nostalgia - calm.
Or maybe just the feel of sand or grass between our toes .
Or the touch of a loved one's hand .
The list goes on .
Perhaps now - my mind is wandering .
Maybe these are just fanciful dreams - or longings -
Life and reality may not be so sweet -
With its' rush and tear - push and pull -
Too cold - too hot - to wet - too dry - too hungry
Too poor - too weak - too afraid - too fat - too thin
The endless ' Too's ' can go on and on -
But STOP !
These experiences - thoughts or cares -
Do not have to consume us - or control us .
They too will pass - as each season does -
Replaced with - the next Blessing - goodness
Kind word - fulfillment - friendship - Action - hope.
And especially - if each moment is under the loving hand
Of our compassionate Heavenly FATHER -
In whose tender mercy and grace - we dwell -
Secure - content - and at peace .
Whatever the next season brings -
We will trust HIM - to bring about the best for us .
May the peace and love of JESUS fill your lives today
and always - as you place your future and all your
aspirations into HIS care. .......
GOD Bless you .
with love in HIM from S.C.Mitchell.
