The Sioux County Index-Reporter Wednesday, October 6, 2010 I R'S Rev. Mark Heijerman Carmel Reformed Church, Rock Valley WTavth autumn and its marvelously crisp cool air upon , I often hear people commenting that this is their orite time of year. They thoroughly enjoy the colors, the harvest, getting back into a routine, the absence of high humidity, and a break from the heat. Lighting a fire around the old backyard pit on a hot sticky night in July is just not the same as a good sweatshirt night fire in October. And yet, it also happens that many folks tend to qualify their fondness for fall by saying something like, "I love this season, but I'm not quite ready for it because I don't like what comes afterward." In other words, enthusiasm for autumn is tempered by what follows; people find themselves unable to enjoy fall as much as they would like because they've got their eyes on winter. It's an interesting way of thinking. With this rationale, every- body ought to love Mnter because of what follows--spring! All of this brings to mind a couple of thoughts. First, it's important to live and seize each day for what it is. Jesus says, "Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own" (Matthew 6:34), and so if today is sunny and warm, enjoy it without fretting about the possibility of snow tomorrow. Don't waste a good day by worrying about what may happen in the future. And yet, secondly, we have to realize that the future does have a way of impacting the present. If students have a test on Friday, it has a way of sapping a little of Thursday's fun I remember having to play trumpet solos on various Sunday evenings when I was a teenager and it made me so nervous at times that I'd have that sick feeling in my stomach already on Saturday. Of course, it works the other way around too. If you have some fun stuff planned for the weekend, it tends to brighten your step during the week. Winter weather is a little easier to handle in March than it is in January because you know that spring is on the horizon. And so, even though we have to seize each day for what it is, the fact remains that knowledge of the future does impact the present; it adds or detracts from our lives. This is especially true with regard to spiritual things. Depending on what you're facing in the end, it makes a differ- ence in your attitude today. To know Christ is to have a future that is secure and thus a present that is filled with a peace that passes all understand'mg. Stalk Chopping & raking available!!
