Thankful Thursday-Seasons


Hello everyone, welcome to another thankful Thursday. I am very grateful for all the seasons of my life. When I think of winter, I think about the trials that I have been through in my life. The cold has blown through my life, chilling my heart almost to the point of death, but my precious Saviour always comes to my rescue, warming my heart with His love. Chasing away the storms once again. Spring reminds me of renewal, a time of rebirth. I think of when I gave my life to the Lord, I was born again. I think of when I got married, it was in the spring. Two life's became one, starting a new life together. There is such beauty in the spring of life. Summer reminds me of fun times, and Sonshine everywhere. His love shining down upon me can make it feel like summer always. Fall makes me think of change. The leaves on the trees begin to change color, the air feels crisper. There have been many changes in my life in the last few years, I am not the woman I use to be. But, I praise God for those changes, they have made me stronger. I love You Lord, and I give you much praise for each season that You allow me to enjoy.

I must say you are a great writer. I love how you put your words together. Have you written or considered writing a book? You'd probably write an awesome fiction inspired by real-life book.
