Contradictions in Terms (Erin)
The weather. . .I am happy it has been so warm here in Minnesota--but I can't wait for snow.
The sky. . . The supermoon at night is amazing, but I love the warm sun and deep blues of late autumn afternoons.
The holidays. . . I love the chance to gather with family, be thankful, and celebrate--but the to-do lists get a little crazy.
Family and friends. . . I treasure time spent with my family and friends--but the early nights make my introvert side come out, and sometimes I just want to curl up with a book.
Television. . . Who do you like better, The Flash--or SuperGirl?
Even music. . .Should I try to commit Hamilton to memory (minus the bad words)--or start listening to Christmas albums?
As much as I might long to be steady, even-keeled, and consistent, I think the contradictions in our lives are part of what makes us uniquely human.
The writer of Ecclesiastes reminds us,
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens-- Ecclesiastes 3: 1
Here's to embracing each moment the season brings.
What contradictions are you finding in your life right now? How can you embrace them?
