Different Season of Life

Right now I have a 3 1/2 year old and 1 1/2 year old. I am not pregnant, yet. :) I have a good amount of energy and health right now. But that could all change, and soon. If God blesses us with another little one around the house, based off of my last two pregnancies I will not have a lot of energy and the yuckiness will try to take over. This contrast hit me the other day when I was thinking about all the lovely expecting gals at church and how I would like to make each and everyone one a yummy lasagna. (I have not hit the casserole stage of life yet, but we do like our homemade lasagna). It occurred to me that this needs to be a season of serving for me. Why? Because I can. I know what it is like to lay on a couch, big and pregnant, exhausted, feeling like life will always be this way. Fortunately it isn't. God remembers us and gives us a beautiful reward for all our hard work and longsuffering. :) Our season's change, and our needs and abilities change. In some months I could be the one receiving a casserole from a friend. Have you thought about this? What season are you in? If you are in a season where it seems like you are constantly receiving, take heart and enjoy it with thanksgiving! I know for me it is hard to receive the help that I need sometimes, but I think that is what God was trying to teach me, to just receive. So, this was my little epiphany the other day --- "Get busy on those baby blankets and lasagnas Brooke...your season may be changing soon!" :) Have a blessed day. Oh! Hopefully pictures from our FLA trip will be up soon. It was so fun!!
