Good is not seasonal

Often it seems that we live in a world where good appears to be unreliable, even shaky at times. We may even wonder if a job, which is now satisfying and meeting our needs, will still be here in the coming months. There is nothing unnatural about wanting good and having good. In fact, we should want good for our families and for others as well. But can we do anything to help remove feelings of uncertainty? 

More than 30 years ago, my husband, Roy, started a business designing and installing commercial and residential sprinkler systems. The business grew and thrived. However, during the months of December and January, there was often a significant drop in activity. I came to view our business as “seasonal.” Some years before this, I had also been employed in a business that was considered seasonal, and each year three months of layoffs were routine. I had accepted this as fact. But I was to learn that I was wrong.
