Thoughts concerning transition....

My great friend "livin life" inspired me this morning. She posted her thoughts concerning transition on her blog, you have to check it out! She's great and I love her lots!!! I got to thinkin....

I have found that life really is one transition after another, kind of like the seasons. Ohhh, I love certain ones better than the others, like the breaking forth of Spring and the warmth of summer and the beautiy of fall and the reminder with every fresh snow that my sins have been washed just that clean.

But there are things in each season that are work, not fun. Like getting the ground ready for new plantings, pruning back what died over the winter, the unbearable heat, raking of leaves and cold north winds.

I know that I will find things I can enjoy in each season and things that are hard, disappointing. And I know that "this too shall pass".

I am grateful for everything the Lord reveals to me, some in the good, and some in the hard and difficult places, knowing that each of the revelations, whether in the good times or the hard ones, brings me closer, makes me wiser and matures me in Him. I think they call it "seasoned".
So, I cherish what I am taking from the season I am leaving and I look forward to finding Him in the new season I am about to step into. For He is good, and His mercy endures forever!

Seasoned....(by the seasons)

What is the difference between seasoned...and used?

In our society, “used” almost immediately implies that it will need to be replaced at some point. However, (for example) “seasoned” stoneware is actually more desirable in it’s “used” state than it was new. It’s no less “used” than my skillet, but with each use, the stoneware becomes more valuable....

So do I season my time or just use it? I hope to add value to my life every day by seasoning rather than just using the time to pass.

What’s the difference between a used car and a pre-owned car?

When someone is experienced in a particular field - we call them seasoned.

I don’t ever want to be consider a used person. But seasoned - that has a much deeper association with it.
