Does the October season beginning of fall make us feel sad? If so, perhaps this rather wise clever ditty may help blow our blues away?
I read a Purplerays blog post which always contains positive brief posts to brighten our day.
This post reminded me of King Solomon’s wisdom verses about the seasons in life that compare a good or happy, with a bad or sad season we all will or may experience in life.
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate ancient wisdom verses and an idiom to remind us about seasons in life. Perhaps the advice may help us cope to compare the good and the bad in every season we may experience in our short lifespans on earth..
King Solomon – Ecclesiastes
The wind blows to the south and turns to the north; round and round it goes, ever returning on its course. (1:6)
To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; (3:1,4)
Idiom – run hot and cold
To vacillate between two opposing or starkly different states, opinions, or behaviors.
Purplerays Blog Poem
“October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came-
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.”
