When Seasons Change
It seems like yesterday, I was a child getting ready for my first day of school. I was so small that the bus driver had to get out of the bus to help me on. I blinked and the season changed.
Now I was a young child, getting into a fight with the school bully, simply because I refused to fight. She thought she would make me, whether I wanted to or not. One black eye later and many tears, I blinked and the season changed.
I was in Junior High school, with all it's ups and downs and ins and outs. I wanted friends so much, but the other kids did not seem to like me. We moved a lot, and I was always the new kid. I was just trying to belong. They called me frog and laughed at me. I blinked and the season changed.
High school brought more loneliness, tears and a few friends. I learned, l lived, I loved, I blinked and it was gone.
My life has been that way, every season has brought a new moment, a new year, a new person to experience the joys and pains, the hurt and tears, the happiness and laughter. I was married, I had children, life was good, life was heartbreaking. I learned that Heavenly Father really does love me. He really is there. He really will answer prayers. I also learned that sometimes the answer is "no". I know now that when I blink again, the season will change. So I can hold on. I can endure, I can rejoice. I can know that no matter what happens, good or bad, the season will change.
Now it is your turn. What season are YOU in.
