Seasons come and go. Right now we are transitioning from summer into fall. Each season has its appointed time and its appointed purpose.
There are times when fruit is abundant and times when it is slim pickings. You can’t expect to fill your basket year round. Know the seasons and adjust your expectations accordingly.

I will be grateful knowing that God is at work in this season to bring about His perfect plan.

Father, You are Lord of the spring, summer, fall and winter. I trust You. I choose gratefulness and joy. Amen.
