Things take time
Things take time in their own time. Each season has it's way to be. Winter restoration turns to Spring planning, Summer abundance to Autumn harvest.
If you miss a season of growth wait till the next because we might waste chances for other harvests, lamenting over that which was not for us.
Life is about finding out what your harvest will be, what makes your heart sing. One of mine is knowing how a bag of shirts, lovingly prepared, can become a quilt and having the patience to know, maybe it's more of a winter thing.
For now I will prepare the ground for other kinds of growth, for more opportunities for our whole community to find out what makes their hearts sing and learning what songs live deep in our souls, yet to be sung.
