Summer: Reaping

Summer: Reaping the Harvest

Characteristics:  Long days, Harvest, Growth

Benefits:  Reaping, Celebration

 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self–control.”  Galatians 5:22 

This is the season we have been waiting for.  Finally we get to see the "fruit of our labor".  It is hard to do so much in preparation and waiting on the harvest.  We can easily get impatient waiting.  It seems like it never comes.
    When I was a child I remember planting a bean in a cup.  We would water it daily and see what happens.  One day I got impatient, dug down and pulled the plant out.  The seed had busted but not broke ground.  This caused the plant to die.    Because of my impatience I lost harvest.
     Summer is coming if we have done the work for the harvest.  There is reaping and celebration during these times.  This is a time of growth.  It can be overwhelming but fun. 
     The work is not over.  The reaping must be done.  It takes time but it must be done.
      The summer time is also a time to enjoy the season.  There is a lot of work to be done  but we must enjoy the season.  
       We must keep a balance here.  If we don't reap then the harvest will die.  If we over work then we will be no good for the next season.
       Where are you in your season? We have seen winter, spring and summer next blog we will see fall.
