It is delightful to be a woman in my autumnal years of life. Ladies, I exhort you to enjoy the seasons of your life. As the years go by and your season changes — do not resist. The place of less resistance is change. Seasons change, we change. I expect God’s glory to show up in each season and my desire is to hold my head up and not miss the wonder of it all.
The Spring of your years comes with birth and a testament to hope and you are welcomed into the world. Summer blooms and you are dancing in the breeze with joy preparing for the harvest to come and family is born. Autumn in its’ splendour is offering the fruits of your labour and you begin storing in order to survive the winter of your life — the trees shed their leaves and in the dying have left their mark…as if to say don’t be sad this is the true cycle of life and not the end. Winter is cold and gloomy and sometimes sad but more often than not it is glorious in its’ beauty. I captured this unmistakeable message on my walk the other day.
My autumnal message is ~ I am leaving my mark, I am.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 English Standard Version Bible says “To everything there is a season” and that is perfection.
