Corn

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!

Ecclesiastes 3

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.

    As much as I love the busy seasons with the kids…It is tiresome, but so worth it. Hope you get some rest this weekend. I could sure use some:)

    Now maybe you know why this is one of my favorite bible verses. Some “seasons” are good and some are bad, but somehow you get thru all of them.
    GOD is GOOD!

    Love you,
    MOM

  3. And I’m in a different season – youngest 19 yrs old – working and saving for a mission trip. All the rest out on their own. Sometimes I miss that busy season that you are now in – but mostly I am thankful for this quieter season. My husband and I are enjoying having more time for each other. And of course – grandchildren will come someday soon!

    Hello, I am also a follower of Jesus 🙂 but I wanted to ask you, can I use this last picture of the corn stalk on picnik and make something different out of it? I typed “corn stalk” on google images and found this picture. I don’t think I will publish it or anything like that, but I just wanted to know if I could use it for myself. Thanks!
