Every season has its beauty. It’s now summer and i like its irresistible offers - getaway with loved ones, beach, sand, sunglasses (so you can stare at the warm sunshine) and time off from school.
Spring equals colorful and fragrant flowers, blue skies, quiet and cool winds, and just-fine-weather. How I wish spring is just a natural season in my country!
I also want to experience autumn or fall someday. It signals change. It’s a transition from the hot summer sun to the icy winter chills.
But if there’s a season we’re so familiar with, it’s the rainy season. It brings refreshing sprinkles and moods perfect for all-day-sleep treats. It also gives generous cups of drink to our crops and gardens.
Recently I learned about two varieties of rain from a promise given by God. “I will send rain on your land in its season, both autumn and spring rains, so that you may gather in your grain, new wine and oil.” – Deuteronomy 11:14. Autumn and spring rains also mean early and late rains or first and last rains. Rain in every season, blessings each at its proper time!
It doesn’t matter if we’re experiencing the dryness of summer, the boredom of autumn or even the coldness of winter. Through the seasons that change, God’s blessings abound and His love remains strong. God gives abundant showers of grace all the time.
Every season presents an invitation to a graceful dance in the rain! :)
