The Night Season, a great time to stop, ponder and reflect. To take an inward look at WHO you are, who you were and WHO you are becoming, or want to become.
I enjoy the night season at times, especially when the kids are in bed and fast asleep. Here is a perfect picture.
The boys, they are upstairs, in bed and asleep, my wife is alseep in our room, with our cat, also asleep at her feet. The house is in complete silence and all that can be heard are the words flowing in your heart and mind. Yes, the peace and quiet is a great sanctuary to stop and reflect and one of my favorites is to either journal, or write to my blog.
The night season, can be a deep time to reflect on your own heart, silence your soul and listen to your Creator speak life back into your life and Destiny! At times, which is what was experienced by my heart recently, while writing, came across a SERIES of emotions, most of which need to be attended to and taken care of, or gotten rid of, one of the many great lessons learned in life is that we are not designed to carry some things that we are trying so desperately to carry. Well, light was being shed on such things in my heart and it was house cleaning time.
And as this was happening, it was quite painful. There were things that I just did not want to deal with, but know that it has to be done, the light was being shed on it all for a reason, and the reason is designed to bring me freedom and move me in the correct path to meet my destiny. Easy project, no, painful, but in the end, good! Am I there yet, not quite, but do know that the path and trail that is being taken is the correct one. There is a whole new level of freedom for me to walk in.
There is a passage that I like in the bible that relates to this part my night season:
“Weeping may endure for a night, But JOY comes in the morning.”
And, yes, there is morning. A new day. Like Anne’s Teacher once told her on Anne of Green Gables, “Tomorrow is a Brand New Day, with No Mistakes in it yet!”
Yes, I love the night season, the quiet, the peace, there really is nothing like it.
What about you, is there a quiet time that you enjoy? Is there a place you like to silence your soul and reflect? If so, what does that look like?
