Seasons Change

On this the 14th day of February (Happy Valentines Day) I'm reposting another of my poems from the Pilgrim Song blog.  I hope it speaks to your heart.

(Thank you to my friend Saija for this excellent graphic!)

As I read these words, "He changes times and seasons" my poetic juices began to gurgle beneath the surface...

Seasons Change 

He changes times and seasons
According to His will
He always has His reasons
And they are best but still...

We question things and wonder
Why God allows the pain
The storms, the rain, the thunder
Are meant but for our gain.

The icy cold of winter
Yields to the warmth of spring
Our trials though they're bitter
Will end and sweetness bring.

God changes times and seasons
And when the pain we've stood
We'll learn the Father's reasons
He planned them for our good!
