“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven” (Ecclesiastes 3:1, Holy Bible, King James Version).

Without the noticeable tick, tick, tick of a second hand, a digital clock moves from one minute after the hour to two. Three. Four. Five. Minutes march in silence until 59 transitions to double zero, marking a new hour. Hours glide toward a full day. Seven sunrises announce a new week. A month slips by, then two and three to a new season. Spring foliage dispels winter’s grip. Summer bursts into bloom. A blaze of red, brown, and gold hues blend into fall before icicles proclaim another winter. Seasons transition into a year. Purpose emerges in this cycle to bring hope to those who trust in God.

Prayer: Lord, let the seasons of my life proclaim my hope and confidence in You. Amen.
