The Seasons in Life (Parable 1)

Aloooo semuanya.. How are you these past weeks? Busy with school?Work? Other activities? Tetap semangatt ya semuanya.. Sebelum memulai post, mau bilang dulu.. Ehem ehem.. : HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR MY LOVELY COUNTRY INDONESIA!!! DIRGAHAYU KE 67!! MERDEKA!! KEEP MOVING FORWARD TO BECOME A BETTER NATION ALWAYS YA!!

Langsung saja ke topik, post kali ini adalah suata perumpamaan tentang SEASONS IN THIS LIFE.. Ada cerita lucu di balik ini saya ceritakan sebentar ya.. Belakangan ini saya dapat shift malam, yaitu jam 15:00-23:00.. Pada saat bekerja ada break time 30 menit, saya lalu makan dan menggunakan komputer yang ada di back of office untuk check email dan blog.. Setelah selesai melakukan pengecekan, saya log out dari blog dan secara RANDOMLY melakukan blogwalking sambil menunggu waktu break saya habis.. Tiba-tiba, dengan hanya 1x klik 'next blog', saya menemukan cerita perumpamaan ini.. Setelah saya membacanya, saya bergumam sendiri dalam hati, 'Wah ini bagus sekali. Saya nanti akan share juga di blog ah'.. So here it is! It's not that long like previous post kok, LOL.. Enjoy ya!

** There was a man who had four sons. He wanted his sons to learn not to judge things too quickly. So he sent them each on a quest, in turn, to go and look at a pear tree that was a great distance away.

The first son went in the winter, the second in the spring, the third in summer, and the youngest son in the fall. When they had all gone and come back, he called them together to describe what they had seen. 

a) The first son said that the tree was ugly, bent, and twisted

b) The second son said no it was covered with green buds and full of promise.

c) The third son disagreed; he said it was laden with blossoms that smelled so sweet and looked so beautiful, it was the most graceful thing he had ever seen.

d) The last son disagreed with all of them; he said it was ripe and drooping with fruit, full of life and fulfillment. 

## The man then explained to his sons that they were all right, because they had each seen but ONLY ONE season in the tree’s life.

  • He told them that you CANNOT JUDGE a tree, or a person, BY ONLY ONE SEASON, and that the ESSENCE of who they are and the pleasure, joy, and love that come from that life CAN ONLY BE MEASURED AT THE END, when ALL the seasons are UP.

*** If you give up when it’s winter, you will miss the promise of your spring, the beauty of your summer, fulfillment of your fall.

  1. Don’t let the pain of ONE season destroy the joy of ALL the rest. 
  2. Don’t judge life by ONE difficult season. 
  3. Persevere through the difficult patches and better times are SURE TO COME some time or later.

Regards, Cindy
