I love the book of Ecclesiastes. There are so many verses that have incredible wisdom and poignancy that cannot be equaled under the sun. This must be one of them.
Today, though I would like to spend some time to rest and reflect, however it is necessary for me to get ready for what’s next. Preparation for the next coming season in different ways. We are officially in autumn. A beautiful season with it’s kaleidoscopic colour changes. The deciduous trees seem to turn off their chlorophyll taps and the leaves hold on as their colour ebbs away. Then as the winds pick up and grow stronger, after a valiant battle, they let go and fall to the ground.
As the sun’s trajectory gets lower daily, the colder weather is looming and lurking around the corner. The season is changing, so in advance of this, I have taken advantage of the mild day and have been measuring, cutting and fitting some DIY double glazing for the motor-home. I have used some poly carbonate box section sheeting normally used for conservatory roofs, so it has the same thermal properties. It’s quite a cheap alternative to expensive double glazed units normally used in motor-homes. It also has a security aspect of reducing visibility in, while still allowing 85% of daylight in.
The seasonal change affects us all in a multitude of ways, whether it’s daylight, or weather, the clothes we wear to compensate or the food we eat due to availability or necessity, all things are affected .
The Holy Bible tells us in the book of Hebrews 13:8 that “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever“. So we know that we have an eternal Saviour not swayed or affected by anything external like us. So we can look to Him for all our needs and to strengthen us, we can rely on Him, put our trust in Him.
In Psalm 90 verse 2 we read “before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting.
You are God.
Bertie wasn’t notified that the weather is changing, he was still up early ready for a long walk this morning. X
