  1. Thank you for this word today. I’m so grateful that as we walk through the changing seasons, in life as well as in nature, God holds us and provides and blesses beyond comprehension. Asking the Lord’s bountiful blessings, grace, and courage to keep going, to surround us all this season!

  2. Kaitlyn you are a beautiful writer. Such a gift to be able to speak such a lovely picture of the seasons and Gods immeasurable love for us. Your words were very meaningful and comforting- we are all so very blessed to be in his care.

  3. Thank you for sharing this story with us. Without a doubt, God does not change and He is with His children every step they take every day we live. How often we forget He is living within us. The Holy Spirit, who leads and guides us reminds us of God’s great love for us

    As our seasons change, and circumstances come and go, we are reminded to keep our eyes stayed on Jesus. That’s not always easy because we live in our earth suits and we are tempted to repair what is broken in us but only God can mend our broken hearts.

    Don’t get weary in well doing the Bible says, but sometimes we are just weary from day to day and from project to project and from child to child (Smile). Never give up on your hope and trust in God. Someone said God does not keep a calendar at all. He is not in a hurry but He is always on time because He is an on-time God.

    Enjoy your Holiday week.

    Happy Thanksgiving


  4. Hello, Kaitlyn.

    It’s been a while since I visited this page, but today I just had this strong urge to grab my laptop, sit in a quiet corner, and read. I’m really glad I did.

    I have a difficult time coping with the seasons changing–both literally and figuratively. I grew up in a country where it’s always in the 80s and 90s. It’s my first year here in Chicago, where winter is… brutal, and the feeling of dread is now sinking in; having to deal with the sudden drop in temperature and the melting snow soon, as well as darkness at 4 in the afternoon. I dread change so much growing up. I should be used to it, knowing that in life, change is one of the few things that is constant.

    I sometimes forget that our God is a God who walks with us in these changes. I worry so much about life, and the days to come, but I want to thank you for writing such beautiful and comforting piece. Your words have reminded me that I need not to worry–that God is with us in every season, in every high and every low. Thank you so much and have a blessed Holiday weekend with family!


    • I hear you, Patricia! Good grief, the sun setting at 4pm takes such a toll doesn’t it?! But I’m so glad that you found your way to (in)courage today and that the words showed up at just the right time. Hope to see you back here tomorrow…? 🙂

  5. Kaitlyn,

    I, like you, grew up with palm trees, warm humid weather. We moved two states north. I am loving living among the mountains with changing seasons. Life is often like the seasons. It is full of changes. Some can be good while others are dreaded. No matter what comes your way-a job loss, death, or beautiful colors from fall that lead to snowy winters one constant remains-Jesus Christ. We should doggedly hold on Him & His promises. After all the promise maker is a promise keeper. He is the same yesterday, today & tomorrow.

    Blessings 🙂
