Winter turns to Summer

Hello Beautiful

I love the end of Men in Black II when Agent K is convincing Laura she is an Alien.

Agent K: When you get sad it always seems to rain.
Laura: Lots of people get sad when it rains!
Agent K: It rains because you're sad baby.

There are many days that I feel as though God makes it rain because I am sad.  I love those moments because it reminds me that He empathizes and cares about my distressing day.

Lately the weather where I live has been absolutely beautiful.  Vividly blue skies, 70 degree temperature, and a gentle breeze have brought in a gorgeous spring.  This unseasonably beautiful weather matches how amazing my life has been this past month.  The days have been full of barbeques and band practice. Friends gathering for fun and for worship.  Work is less stressful and the house is clean.  There is an alignment in my life that lets me know the winter has passed.

I love that we refer to life as having seasons.  It lets us know when we are going through a tough time relief will come soon.  Whether it is medical problems, family troubles, or financial hardships, we can always have hope that these things will pass.  Humans heal, relationships may be restored, and finances can be recovered.  We must heavily remind ourselves that Hope never leaves our side.  We have to fight to get out of winter’s storm.

When we are in a sunny season, we should remind ourselves to make preparations for the next storm.  Preventive maintenance on our bodies is as simple as eating right and exercising.  Our relationships will survive strain if we invest in them with time and memories.  The next financial crisis will be more bearable if we put money into savings.  And most importantly, enjoying the good seasons and reducing our stress levels will go a long way to a healthier, balanced life.

Seasons are constantly changing in life.  It is natural for us to cry when it is raining and celebrate when the sun is shining.  What is important is that we continue to move forward with faith and hope that we were created for better things.  We live before a God that wants to see you constantly grow. A loving Father that wants you to see in all seasons you are beautiful.
