To tell you the truth... this ^ is why I blog. I want to remember each season in its particular joys, triumphs or struggles, to look back in gratitude on this amazing adventure of life, and to keep account of God's love and faithfulness in all things.
In that spirit, here is a taste of my current season - words which best describe now...
this season (in my work life) is:
* full of variety
this season (in my home life) is:
* fairly free from responsibilities
this season (in my spiritual life) is:
* a time of closeness, challenge and learning
this season (in my married life) is:
I want to remember. I am enjoying substitute teaching, carefree townhouse-renting, afternoon and evening walks by the river, Sunday suppers out at the farm, watching the Amazing Race & playing cards with my grandparents, helping Neal mark grade 6 assignments, evening coffee with dear friends, show-home scouting, having my brother-in-law stop by for supper & Settlers of Catan (or to try out Mensa tests to see if we are geniuses *snicker*), having time for reading & creating. These days are calm, and sweet.
We will not always be in this amazing rental (with a cleaning lady every other week *cough* don't hate - its part of the rental package!). Life may bring more responsibilities our way and we will learn to cope in a new season. Our work/life balance may not always be this perfect. So today I embrace it all, and give thanks for my current season.
"To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven."
