This is the summertime of your life, the time to be building businesses, developing relationships, and being a warrior out in the world. Usually, this season begins in your mid-twenties and ends in your mid-fifties, give or take a decade. Who you become, the people you nurture, and the wrok you do in the summertime of your life all contribute to the making of your harvest, or your legacy. In the fall of your life, you reap what you sow. And just as easily as you emerged, you eventually fall back into the cold of winter. There is a cycle to everything. But there are many more seasons within the course of a lifetime. There will be times in your life where you must enter a fiery summer, and I am sure you have already experienced this. So long as you are active in the world, you will experience these summers. The summer is an exciting time of your life.

Mandy Hale, The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass. She appreciated her own reflection- she looked less than a tenth of her earthly age- but knew the years were bound to catch up. There had been a time or two when she had put a glamour on herself, to reverse those years, to remember and even to capture the attention of a young man so she could make the kind of vigorous love she had enjoyed before. But she wouldn't have tried to keep up the glamour permanently, or to create the violent kind of spells that she could have to remain in a state of perpetual youth
1 For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven. 2 A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest. 3 A time to kill and a time to heal. A time to tear down and a time to build up. 4 A time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to grieve and a time to dance. 5 A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones. A time to embrace and a time to turn away. What does it say? Life is made up of many different seasons. And not just seasons like winter, spring, summer, and autumn. Different seasons of life for different emotions and different responsibilities. What does it mean? The Lord created different seasons in our lives to shape us, help us deal, and create us into who He intended us to be. He uses seasons to show us that He is good and can make everything beautiful for its own time (verse 11).
But a time of waiting is fairly guaranteed to happen again in life. Betsy Childs Howard said this about waiting well in her article, When You Just Want to Leave the School of Waiting. You see, for God, the goal of this is not that I should learn my lesson so that I don’t have to wait anymore. God wants me to learn how to wait so that I can wait well, even if my waiting continues for the rest of my life . Ultimately, God is in control of all seasons. Whichever season you’re currently in, remember that God is making everything beautiful in its time.

In January of 1969, a photo was published that forever changed our view of the earth, and of our place in the universe. Just as in nature a new spring follows each winter, so in our life the winter of our elder years is not the end for us spiritually. It is, instead, a time when we are developing the seeds of the new life that we will enjoy when the passage of death brings us to a new birth into our eternal life in the spiritual world. In the animal world, babies are born in the spring. This means that much of their gestation takes place during the winter.
New beginnings can be messy. Read these quotes to remember that all seasons of life, even the ones you like the least, represent new life. 20 Quotes to Help You Embrace (and Not Stifle) All the Seasons of Life. 1. Every season is one of becoming, but not always one of blooming. Be gracious with your ever-evolving self. 5. To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. 6. The blessedness of waiting is lost on those who cannot wait, and the fulfillment of promise is never theirs. They want quick answers to the deepest questions of life and miss the value of those times of anxious waiting, seeking with patient uncertainties until the answers come. They lose the moment when the answers are revealed in dazzling clarity. Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
God wants us to accept joyfully each season of life. Whatever our age, He asks us to commit our way to Him and accept the struggle He allows along with the strength He provides. But the strength and beauty of old age is spiritual . Dedication to Christ is not a one-time choice but a daily challenge. By Dennis J. DeHaan See Other Authors.
Old Testament Laws: Harvest Seasons of Ancient Israel. Various biblical laws and stories refer to ancient Israelite crops and harvests. It may therefore be helpful to have some general information about the harvests and their seasons. Barley and wheat were planted in the autumn and ripened in spring. Barley matured faster and would be harvested sooner. The firstfruits of grain offered during the Festival of Unleavened Bread would have been barley. This harvest period might be subdivided into three seasons and three major crops: the spring grain harvest, the summer grape harvest and the autumn olive harvest. These harvests have a general correspondence with the festivals. Some grain might be harvested after Pentecost, threshing and grape-picking might overlap, and the olive harvest came both before and after the Festival of Tabernacles.
