Archives For seasons

               As the last days of a brutally hot summer are finally upon us, we can look forward to a change…a different season. Fall is my favorite time of year for several reasons.  The colors are suddenly so brilliant.  The air is cool and crisp.  Even sounds are carried differently.  It’s a great time of the year!

Are you changing seasons in your life?  While my nest is empty, some of you are welcoming your first little birdies.

For others, your sweet little girl is entering the teen years and you don’t recognize her at all!  Many are falling in love for the very first time.  Seasons…they are all seasons.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 speaks of a time for everything. “There is an appointed time for everything.  And there is a time for every event under heaven…”(NASB)

Wherever you find yourself today, know that God is with you and that His mercies are new each day.  Be grateful for each day and each friend.  And, don’t forget to get in that last lick on your ice cream stick!  Gwen~

Turn, Turn, Turn

The first “cold front” has hit West Texas.  It was a real blow with temps dipping all the way down into the high 60’s!  Don’t you just love the changing of the seasons?

The Byrds had a tune in the 60’s called Turn, Turn, Turn.  It was an adaption of Ecclesiastes 3.  (Even if you’re not an oldie, you probably recognize the tune.)

Our God never fails, and He never changes,even when the seasons do…~Gwen



Anyone in Particular?

th (11)Does God ever bring anyone in particular to your mind? You think to yourself, I have seen them in years.

I have a young man that worked for me several years ago.  He was completing his Master’s Degree and we shared a love of music.  He came in one day and couldn’t wait to share his newest discovery; “Washed by the Water” by Need to Breathe.  He even amplified it with some speakers.  It is a great song with a fabulous message!

th (14)I haven’t seen that young man for years, but every time I hear that song, the Holy Spirit puts him on my heart.  I lift him and his family in prayer.

“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28, NIV)

Isn’t it wonderful how God puts people in our life for a season, and they end up changing us for a life time? th (15)

Love Heart, take time to listen to that still, quiet voice. Praise God; we are “Washed by the Water!” ~Debra
