 Seasons...the rhythm of life...

It is autumn time and time for harvest.  The leaves are changing colour, falling to the ground, the fruit on the trees has been picked, the fields of corn harvested.  Produce has been stored, harvests gathered in.  Well that is a traditional view, but the reality is that with a short drive to the supermarket we can get whatever produce we may need or want, fruits in and out of season.  

We can all too easily miss the rhythm of the seasons and the change from summer to autumn and then to winter, it can all be too much of a nuisance and annoyance.  We have to turn the central heating on, take note of the clouds and carry an umbrella, wear winter woollies and so on.  We may want everything to stay the same, as in long warm summer days.  But we know that it can’t.  The seasons move on.

Seasons and rhythm are important aspects of God’s created order.  It’s not just the seasons of the year that have a rhythm.  If we sit and think about it and feel it, the whole of life has seasons and rhythm.  There are seasons of growth and dormancy, of joy and sadness, of work and relaxation.  Those of us who have had children know all too well these seasons as we see them in our children; seasons to leave home and then come back, to move on in life, to marry and have children.
