Don't you love the changing of the seasons?  It enforces that things don't always stay the same.  Don't you think that is an awesome thought?  You see, if everything stayed the sames then there would be no 'newness' of anything.  Enjoy the newness of the new season. Look for the newness in your season.  Cherish the time with God right here, right now, or as Jean-Pierre De Caussade calls it, the "Sacrament of the Present Moment."

In the "Sacrament of the Present Moment," De Caussade also says, “All simple souls must admire and respect one another, saying: 'Let us proceed each one along our path to the same goal, united in purpose and by means of God's order which, in its great variety, is in us all.”  It is a cool way to procede in life and then to be in 'the moment.' 

Do not let another season pass you by.  Shift your focus from 'what was' and 'what will be' to 'what is'.  Watch children how they can shut everything just to enjoy nature.  As adults we have missed the lessons of the present moment, whether good or bad. You see, even when we can be in that moment without running, without hiding, without medicating, then we can see God.  De Caussade says, “God instructs the heart, not by ideas but by pains and contradictions.”  Enjoy each season.  When you press into that season you can find peace by finding God. That's mine. Cherish the moment for each turn on your journey, each change of the season, each moment, and I promise you will find peace. type to you later.
