My Review:
 As I have gotten older, I have come to realize that we all have "seasons" that we will pass through or have to endure. These "seasons" as they are referred to, are times in our lives that are marked as hard, easy, happy, sad and they are usually times that sort of stick around for awhile. They are not just a typical bad day, they are spans of time. And with these spans of time no matter how long or how short they tend to change us.

 The author Patti Tingen, through her book entitled, A God For All Seasons takes us along on her spiritual journey in a new way. She does it providing us with lines of encouragement to progress through our own "season". This devotional is set up just a little different than your typical devotion. It is set up and divided by seasons and months of the year.

 As I read along in A God For All Seasons, it caused my to reflect on my personal seasons of growth and very little growth. I felt inspired by the authors words of encouragement. Each entry based around scripture, the author caused me to pause many times and reflect on the words that she offered. I loved every part of her commentary, but I loved the one she chose for November. Giving God thanks for all things good or bad. Realizing that He can do with us and our situations as He deems necessary is a very hard place for many to come to but I have nonetheless. God is a good God ALWAYS!!!
