fruit in season

A decade ago I was a barren woman -- married a decade and a half, approaching my forties, no medical explanation for our inability to have a child, and each time we began to approach adoption,  we saw God close the door - not slamming it and saying "forever no," but always, "not yet."

But then, nine years ago, God did something marvelous in our life.  He opened my womb to give us my favorite little girl in the whole world.  And now she is nine years old, a blessing every day.

Promise one: you will yield fruit in season. The phrase "in season" is always determined by its context; for example, an orange tree doesn't begin to produce edible fruit for about three to four years. In other words, when the right amount of time has passed to to accomplish the pre-determined purpose then fruitfulness comes. There is a right season for fruitfulness and often we are guilty of accepting the world's timetable instead of waiting on the Lord's "season."

We are thrilling to this season of fruit.
