maker’s perfect plan. There are many seasons in a year and in our lives. Some are hot and some are cold. Some send us inside for cover and some bring us out to dance in the rain. The good Lord works it all out for our good. We can trust him to do just that and rest in his care. Season to Season. Drought or Abundance. Sickness or Health…Breathe in His Peace and Rest in His Care. I like you have this beautiful promise From the Word. "The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; for he founded it." Psalm 24:1-2a Dance in his Reign and Enjoy being seasoned in the season!
