The changing seasons of life

in
Asher, Jemery.jpg

Although the recent cold temperatures might demonstrate otherwise, spring has indeed arrived. Trees and flowers are beginning to bloom. Much to the dismay of yard maintenance-challenged folks like me, springtime also means the burden of lawn care. Although the spring season brings yard work and allergies, I am certainly thankful that winter has finally passed. Much like the changing of the weather, our lives can experience different seasons that seem to mimic the patterns of nature. The deep darkness of loss or sorrow can seem like a cold, lonely winter. You may find yourself in a season of life where day-to-day activity can feel like a dry desert, leaving you questioning your purpose. Whenever we experience these life seasons, it can be difficult to maintain a healthy perspective. Our hope can quickly fade to despair, and our expectation that tomorrow will be better can get lost in the doubts that we face. Regardless of the season of life you are in, there is a passage of scripture from the Bible that reflects the wide range of seasons that life can bring.

B1-1.jpg

Late spring often marks the return of grilling season, when friends and families gather in the backyard to share some great food and some good times. Such affairs tend to be more laid back, but that doesn't mean they can't boast cuisine that's as delicious as food you might find at more formal affairs. For those who want to try something different from the traditional grilling fare like hamburgers and hot dogs this season, consider the following recipe for "Spit-Roasted Whole Spring Lamb Overcome By Garlic" from Andrew Schloss and David Joachim's "Mastering the Grill" (Chronicle Books).
