A Season of Change

Ecclesiastes 3:1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under Heaven.

This week I have been thinking of the change that is occurring in our house and how we are trying to adapt to and embrace that change. This September brought about a different change that I am transitioning into. I said goodbye to teaching and hello to full time stay at home mommy. As the seasons change, so do the seasons of our lives. Life would be boring if everything stayed the same. Some days are satisfying, but most days I go to bed exhausted and wondering how I can do it better tomorrow. The teacher in me tries to organize the day with plans and lists and it helps but sometimes those days are just too full and we all get short with each other. We will all find our rhythm and our new roles as time goes on.  I have to remember not clutter up the days with tasks and just to enjoy this season of my life.  Even though it is hard work, I am feeling so blessed right now to be able to stay at home and serve God through raising my children. Verse eleven in Ecclesiastes three states that, “He makes everything beautiful in it’s time.” Brook and I both feel like we are in the thick of raising our children and pray we are doing it correctly. This verse re-assures me to keep persevering when things get ugly. During those times Brook likes to remind me to keep things simple, take time for each other and our family, and to find the beauty and joy in each day.
