How about this weather?!

          This weather change has been a welcome event!  Nice cool evenings and cold mornings are wonderful after the hot summer months.  The forecast for the day is a high of 55 and a chance of rain this evening.  Yep! Fall has arrived!  I am thankful the way God has designed the seasons for us: Genesis 8:22 ‘While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.’  Seedtime is the spring of the year when the winter is over and the earth warms to receive and germinate the seeds.  During that time there are typically light rains with warm days and cool nights allowing the seeds to come to life.  Harvest is the time when the grains are ready to reap.  The rains are basically over and the temperatures and soil conditions are such that we are able to reap and store the food that has grown to maturity.  Cold is the time of reflection and preparation for the next planting season.  For those who have prepared for the cold can enjoy the season of refreshing! Summer is a time of relaxing and the pursuit of life’s pleasures, so we take vacations and take day trips enjoying the fruits of our life.  Winter…well what can be said: It is a time of sitting around the fire hearing and being heard: Jeremiah speaks of a winter scene for us:  And it came to pass, that when Jehudi had read three or four leaves, he cut it with the penknife, and cast it into the fire that was on the hearth, until all the roll was consumed in the fire that was on the hearth.’ Jeremiah 36:23  I look forward to sitting around the fire with my Bible in hand and enjoying the warmth of the fire on a cold day. 

          Oh, yeah, Day and Night: Wow!  Did God know what He was doing?  Considering that He never slumbers or sleeps, {Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. Psalm 121:4} God knowing what is good for us gave us sweet slumber and sleep!  I don’t need scientific studies to tell me how important the night is!  After a full day of work and play, when the evening comes, God gives us sweet sleep: {It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep. Psalm 127:2} 

Yes, God knew what He was doing, but: ‘Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions.’ Ecclesiastes 7:29    

Now, if you are reading this and live in an area where the seasons are not well pronounced, you may not be living in God’s Country: You see Jerusalem is His own place and we are on the same plain as Jerusalem: called 30 parallel north.  Giving us the same basic weather as ‘God’s Country’. 

          Well, now you know!
