To Everything There is a Season

Long overdue Z-Tejas Margarita! Oh how I MISSED YOU!

Being silly and taking pics, which turned into my first ever Instagram pic! Woo! 

To everything - turn, turn, turn
There is a season - turn, turn, turn
And a time for every purpose under heaven

The silver was shiny and polished and the script was engraved softly on the metal. My friend Jessica and I scoured them over, and decided on a purchase. The quote was on there perfectly, "A time for every purpose under heaven". I asked her what it meant, she said she thought it was from the Bible. I told her I thought it was from a song. Whatever it was, we liked it, and it meant something to us. We slipped them on our wrists and enjoyed them for the rest of our vacation, and them some. 

Today I am reminded of that silver bangle, because that quote, which happens to be from the Bible and the song, is resonating as I lay in bed tossing and turning. A part of me wrapped up in that surgery, in a neat little package, and after some time, a new season began. This new season is amazing. It involves catching up on lost time. 

I watched friends fall in love, get married, have babies, go abroad on trips, ski the mountains and even just have a beer at a bar. I watched it on Facebook, from my bed or the hospital usually. I tried to not be jealous, and to imagine a life where I could do those things too. Sometimes I would feel sorry for myself and beg God to take me back to 2008 when things were normal. Those were irrational thoughts. I even dreamed of being a flight attendant so I could just "fly away" from what was happening (even though I was too sick to fly away). That season has ended. It ended about two months ago, when energy returned, and life returned.

The new season is my turn. My turn to meet new people, try new things, go on any fun adventures I think of, or others think of and invite me to join! I can't wait. Today was a day that the permanent smile didn't leave my face. Why? Because this new season is a happy season with big things in store.

  1. Love this!! And that verse was what we based our wedding ceremony/marriage vows on, the song was what I walked down the aisle to. (Yeah it was totally a big hippie wedding...) For a while I wondered if I cursed us by using that for our wedding, because, boy did it fit. We have definitely had a few rough times in our short little marriage so far!!! But God is so faithful, and even though there are struggles, there are constant reminders of how blessed we are. So glad you are moving out of your HUGE struggle, girl!!! You totally deserve to go chase your dreams and get everything you ever wanted. ---Tara Cajacob
