The corn is gone, I noticed it the other day while out for a bike ride workout. I could now see the beautiful fall view beyond the tall corn. It has now all been harvested, and stored away for the winter. There is nothing left but a brown faded stump of a corn stalk. It seems like just yesterday I was out riding and noticed those teeny stalks of green corn emerging from the soil. Now the field looks so bare and empty. The splendor of a healthy summer crop is gone.
While continuing on my bike ride I was reminded once again that to every thing there is a season!
1 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:
2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot
I am in a busy season right now with my kids and family, but it seems like not that long ago I was a stay at home mom with a 2 year old and 4 year old. Or I was up nursing babies in the middle of the night and wondering when I would ever be able to sleep through the entire night!
Now I am sleeping through the night, but I am still exhausted! 🙂 But I am reminded this is a season, things will change, just like the corn does. It’s all part of God’s plan and I am so thankful that I can see God’s handiwork and plans in our life.
I miss the tall, lean corn stalks that greeted me on my summer rides, but I love the farm view that the corn stubs now give way to. Seasons change, and so does my life, it’s all part of God’s plan, the good and the bad.
