Everything has a life cycle, from plants to relationships. There’s a time to sow, and a time to reap. While those are easy to spot, the inbetween time is a bit nebulous. We can’t see plants grow, and we can’t see relationships grow apart.
But one day you suddenly realize the corn is six feet tall. And one day you see the relationship is six feet under. It doesn’t necessarily mean anyone did anything wrong. Circumstances just conspired to make it that way. Just like time helped the corn, time caused the relationship to become distant.
The trick is to realize that everything has a season, including relationships. It’s just hard to see that when you’re in the middle of it. Looking back, it’s much more clear.
To everything there is a season…
