Seasons Of The Soul

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. Ecclesiastes 3:1
 
 
Just as there are seasons that represents the many phases in nature, we too have seasons that represents the many phases we experience in our lives. Below is a poem by Helen Steiner Rice that expresses these seasons in our lives so eloquently. BE BLESSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
 
The Soul, Like Nature, Has Seasons, Too
 
When you feel cast down and despondently sad
And you long to be happy and carefree and glad,
Do you ask yourself, as I so often do,
Why must there be days that are cheerless and blue?
Why is the song silenced in the heart that was gay?
And then I ask God what makes life this way,
And His explanation makes everything clear-
The soul has its seasons the same as the year.
Man, too, must pass through life's autumn of death
And have his heart frozen by winter's cold breath,
But spring always comes with new life and birth,
Followed by summer to warm the soft earth...
And oh, what a comfort to know there are reasons
That souls, like nature, must too have their seasons-
Bounteous seasons and barren ones, too,
Times for rejoicing and times to be blue...
For with nothing but sameness how dull life would be,
For only life's challenge can set the soul free...
And it takes a mixture of both bitter and sweet
To season our lives and make them complete.

Ecclesiastes was a Greek philosopher and tragedy writer according whom there is a fixed time for everything. Nothing can happen before and after its fixed time. It is the rule of nature that you have to wait for an appropriate time for a thing to happen.

Ecclesiastes was a Greek logician and disaster essayist as indicated by whom there is a settled time for everything. Nothing can occur previously, then after the fact its settled time. It is the deciding of nature that you need to sit tight for a proper time for a thing to happen.
