For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
a time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
a time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
a time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing
a time to seek, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to throw away;
a time to tear, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
a time to love, and a time to hate;
a time to war, and a time for peace.
(Ecclesiastes 3 1-8)
We are couple of days into spring yet the Denver area is digging out of a foot of snow while people in other parts of the country are digging in their gardens. Spring is indeed a time of contrasts.
Spring is also a transformative time of year. It is a time to honor those who were past-over. A time of resurrection when the colors of nature come alive. It is a time to celebrate life in all its manifestations.
During this season of transformation, I encourage you to take time to reflect on your inner season of being. I invite you to be mindful of what in you needs to bloom and come alive and to allow that energy to manifest itself in your life. Indeed, for everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.
