Month of Thanksgiving -- Blessing 4

Branch Of Wisdom

In one of my earlier Thanksgiving posts, I referenced the hymn Great is Thy Faithfulness.  I shared the verse about "summer and winter, and springtime, and harvest."  I was reminded of this verse again as I ventured out into the cold breezy afternoon yesterday!  We reached 76 degrees just a few days ago, and yesterday, I was wearing a sweater and actually used a coat.  Which brings me to today's post.

The Lord's mighty hand created this earth and made it to spin.  He also made it to tilt on its axis and rotate around the sun.  This gives us our seasons.  Just as I navigate each season with preparation (getting out summer clothing, for example), and anticipation (awaiting Thanksgiving!), I move through the seasons in life with the same disciplines--submitting to the Lord when trials come, patiently learning Biblical teaching, eagerly looking forward to what the Lord is doing in my life.

Today, I am thankful for the seasons--both the spiritual ones, and the physical ones.  Especially autumn!
