Ecclesiastes 3:1 says "To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven." This afternoon I have been thinking about the different seasons in my life with respect to Sunday dinner.
A few years ago we lived in the same city as two, sometimes three, of our children. I cooked Sunday dinner, and whoever could make it did. Those were rich times in my life.
This afternoon, Gerry spent some time at his office, and I was working on a few projects at home. None of our children are expected, in fact none of our children are in the same country that we are in!
I have just come upstairs from preparing something in the slow-cooker that I will put on for tomorrow, and I put a casserole in the oven for us to eat tonight. Gerry is reading a new Clive Cussler that we picked up at Costco yesterday, and I'm just preparing this post.
Our season has changed. Still, we rejoice in the blessings we have now, have much gratitude for those that we had in the past, and anticipate the wonderful things that God will do in the future!
