There is a time and season for everything

There is a time and season for everything

There is a time and a season for everything under the sun. There is a time to be born and a time to taste the ongoing lessons of life that come with maturing.  Times of laughter and colorful seasons of expression fill our world with beauty.  And times of discomfort and seasons of bleak recognitions befall us all.

Each time and each season encompasses growth, and marks an ending and a beginning.  And with each ending and beginning is always another opportunity for self-discovery. 

What I have come to appreciate of time and season is the ability to embark on new quests of hope and inspiration.  As I grow older my perceptions are transformed by my experiences, my desires are now influences of compassion and good will, and once playful ambitions have matured to realistic motivations.  

The truth is that nothing can remain the same in time and season.  But everything must grow, things must develop, and life must come to its end. It is a perk of nature.  And, it is the true song of the Earth.  Time and season are a mystery that many don’t grasp, yet should appreciate.  As time ages fine wine and we enjoy its taste, so should we embrace what is before us.  There is no time like the present, and no season more important than the current.

I admonish you today to take pleasure in the qualities of life.  Remember, while it is only you who can quantify worth and value, time cannot be measured and seasons cannot be revisited. So capture true beauty, seize true love, choose to dwell in good morality, and forego postponement.  Seek your purpose, realize your dreams, and help someone realize his or her hopes. Time and season will accomplish this purpose.  And we must choose to travel this wise path.  Sometimes we may not discern or comprehend the tenacity of time and season.  But as long as we learn to clasp irreplaceable moments, our existence will forever be meaningful. Because, there is a time and a season for everything under the sun.
