“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.” Eccl. 3:1

I don’t know about you, but I have been enjoying the slow but steady warming and greening of the Valley this spring!

But it has been interesting listening to some of the comments I’ve overheard that it has been “too wet” or “too cold” this year. Admittedly, I have even struggled a bit with the long, rainy days and worrying about the hummingbird feeders freezing up. Silly, I know, especially after last year’s drought and the wildfires which welcomed us to Rye last July!

We humans seem to forget some things quickly when faced with experiencing the opposite extreme. Perhaps that’s why we have to be regularly reminded that “everything has it’s season”, as the good Teacher wrote some three thousand years ago. For every time of celebration there will be a time of sorrow, for every time of plenty there will be a time of need, for every hard fought battle there will be a time of peace, etc., and vice versa.

Every religion and philosophy throughout history have some form of wisdom teaching along these lines. Many fables have been passed down of these words, “This too shall pass.” Words of wisdom that are equally true during both good times and bad. Words that help us get through the toughest of times, and humble us when we are on top of the world.

Whatever you are going through right now, whether it is a struggle in your finances, a loss of a loved one, or physical or mental pain, remember that this too shall pass. The good Lord gives us this wisdom as a hope for the future and better times.

And, likewise, if you are doing well, life is good, and the world is at your fingertips, enjoy it! Celebrate the good times and make the most of them for…well, you get the idea.
