“Live in each season as it passes; breathe air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each. Let them be your only diet, drink and botanical medicines.”
[Henry David Thoreau]
Each passing of a season is a milestone in the years of our lives. We are different as we approach each of them and thus we absorb them differently; regardless, they welcome us to embody their richness.
“One of the conclusions I have come to in my old age is the importance of living in the ever-present now,” writes Ruth Casey. “In the past, too often I indulged in the belief that somehow or other tomorrow would be brighter or happier or richer.”
Thank you Lord, for another day in this life I am given. Please bless me with its gifts.
