Chronicles of Biscuit - Changing Seasons

Today I was at the school around lunch time.  Biscuit's (nickname of our youngest child, Tyler) 1st grade class was going into the cafeteria to eat lunch, but his teacher saw me and came back to talk to me.  It's always scary when she starts any conversation with the words, "I've got to tell you what Tyler said yesterday!"  I told her I was scared (laughingly), but she assured me it was a cute story and that it would be a great blog post!

The 1st grade has been studying seasons.  She was asking the class what season came next and Tyler raised his hand.  She called on him and he answered:  "Baseball!"  He reasoned that after that it's football, then basketball, etc.  She's told me before that if she could make every subject relate to sports he would be happy and eager to learn!

Today was a beautiful, almost 60 degree and sunny day in southwest Oklahoma.  It actually made me think that springtime is near.  But, Sunday there were snow flurries and more are expected some time next week.  Seasons change.  Weather changes - sometimes from day to day.

While scientists and politicians debate about global warming and climate changes, I'm amazed that so much money is spent on research in this area.  In fact, the Bible verifies the fact that it is God who is control of all of this - changing of the seasons and any variations in the seasons.  All over the country billions and billions of dollars could be saved if everyone believed these verses in God's Word:

As long as the earth endures,
seedtime and harvest,
cold and heat,
summer and winter,
day and night
will never cease."
Genesis 8:22
 
The day is yours, and yours also the night;
you established the sun and moon.
It was you who set all the boundaries of the earth;
you made both summer and winter.
Remember how the enemy has mocked you, O LORD,
how foolish people have reviled your name.
Psalm 74:16-18

So, you see, there is proof of the seasons....not baseball season, like Biscuit thought was coming next, but the seasons in nature which were created in the beginning...by God.
