Just as every year has four seasons, life has seasons, too. The difference is that the seasons we go through in our life aren't repeated in a yearly cycle. Most of the seasons of our life come and go, never to be repeated again. Some seasons are short. Mothers may recall how in the blink of an eye your newborn baby became a toddler. Some seasons are long. Young mothers may feel like the toddler and early childhood years are stretching on forever in an endless cycle of laundry, fetching snacks, picking up toys, breaking up sibling skirmishes and trying to train your little one to be a decent human being. Some seasons are gratifying. You may be in a season like that, a season where you are seeing success at your job, in your ministry, in your relationships. Some seasons feel thankless. No one seems to notice, much less appreciate, how you go above and beyond at your job, the delicious meals you put on the table each night, the faithful way you serve each week in the church nursery.
Whatever season you are in, there is One Who knows and notices.
