For everything there is a season

A Tapestry of Love

Cherry Blossoms There is an old joke that we Georgians tell: We say that we are fortunate folk because we get to experience all four seasons in one week.

This past week, Winter packed his bags and went north while Spring was setting up her lounge chair to enjoy the blooming of cherry blossoms and the busy work of carpenter bees.

It was not hard to miss the fact that she was still wearing her heavy coat.

I saw her just the other day, in fact.  She was watering my weeds (somehow missing my grass), and when she looked my way, she held up her hands as if to ask, “What gives?”

Although this week’s weather has caused all of us to ask “What gives?”, acute readers of the Bible will remember that the author of Ecclesiastes mentioned that, “for everything there is a season” (3:1), no matter the time of year.
