What’s Your Season?
We learn in grade school about different flocks of birds and schools of fish migrating during their lifespan. Fish migrate between their spawning, feeding, and nursery grounds, and birds migrate south due to the coldness of the northern winters and back again in the springtime to (according to the internet www.allaboutbirds.org) take advantage of burgeoning insect populations, budding plants and an abundance of nesting locations. We also tend to migrate during our different seasons of our lives.
Vegetation from Separation
On the third day God created separation between the earth and waters. He also created vegetation on that day and plants that were self sufficient and could multiply and populate the earth on their own. I think often times when a separation occurs in our life, such a friendship dwindling, space between jobs, waiting for an answer to come, it hurts. It feels like, “Ok God!, What are you doing!?”
Expanse of Space
On the second day God created a “space between the waters” and He called this the “sky”. On day 4 He filled the sky with planets and stars. During that time in between, the sky was a blank canvas. It was an expanse waiting to be filled.
