Seasons Of Parenting

Season: Autumn 17 and onwards

Autumn marks the end of a cycle. It’s been great…The grass isn’t growing as fast anymore. The trees are starting to turn [gold and] brown…Leaves are falling, and fall means leaving. As a parent, you don’t know what [your child] will face but you hope that you’ve prepared [your child]. Autumn is time of transition from the faith of their parents to their own faith…It’s what’s left when the winds [of life] start to blow…Sickness and setbacks may stalk them; doubts and disappointments may dog them; failure and faltering may follow them… [pp. 23-24]


[But] claim your promise from One who stays with them when they leave you. [p. 24]

Children grow up and may leave home, but nothing shall separate us from the Love of God
