This material is making a significant difference in my life. I read a book recommended by Jim Rohn, while baby-sitting some computer systems during the Y2K turnover.

A devotional companion that helps you grow close to God through every season of life, in every condition of the heart.It challenges and encourages you to discover what's truly important in your own life.
In the light both of the Bible and of modern science we are confronted not with an abstract and generalized man, but with men who are concrete and personal. They are always in their context, in a certain relationship to the world, to others, and to God. They are always changing. This changing is made up of seasons, stages in their lives, each of which has its own characteristics and peculiar laws. It is in this life story that God's plan may be accomplished. This is what is intimated by the title The Seasons of Life: a man in movement, continually undergoing change, a man living in history, unfolding from his birth until his death. The very movement implies meaning in life.
This book shows the co-relation between the four seasons; Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter, and the stages of life ie. from infancy through maturation. The grandmother is explaining the comparisons, in a simplistic form, to her attentive grand-daughter.
The book tells of a young girl who was brutally raped for years. She found her way to Jesus, and he set her free from the bondage and chains of sin and shame. She goes on to tell of the miracles God performed in her life, now that she has learned to trust him.
The Book of Ecclesiastes says that there is a time and a season for everything and a purpose under heaven. You will find that these poems cover spring, summer, autumn, and winter. I feel as though we go through seasons in our lives: spring, when things are just starting to bloom; summer, when everything is right in our lives and the sun seems to be shining; autumn, when our lives start to fall apart like the leaves; and winter, when it is dark and everything seems wrong and with no hope.
Although we are usually adept at preparing for the predictable seasonal changes of nature, we often do not have the understanding or insight necessary to handle changes that occur within the seasons of life. As a result, we are sometimes left flailing when the future we envisioned vanishes or when the relationships that once brought us joy suddenly become the source of unexplainable pain and anguish. Joké Solanké relies on her background as an inspirational speaker, mentor, and coach to share personal stories, a roadmap to understanding the ever-changing seasons of life, and strategies to engage each season in the face of inevitable adversity and pain that comes our way sooner or later in life. Through her insight, stories, and practical tools, Solanké guides others to - understand the fundamentals of change; - become acquainted with the author, architect, designer, and engineer of life; - prepare for life’s contradictions; - plant seeds for the next season of life; and - learn from failures. Understanding the Seasons of Life offers guidance for anyone seeking a new and creative way to overcome obstacles and ultimately build a meaningful life.

The biological rhythms that enable living things to thrive and survive
Author: Leon Kreitzman,Russell Foster
Pubpsher: Profile Books
The natural world is full of rhythms. How do birds know when to return to their nesting grounds? What effect do the seasons have on our wellbeing, and how does the season in which we are born affect our subsequent life chances? How did humans get the idea that there were seasons 50,000 years ago? Seasons of Life explains why the seasons occur, the impact of seasonal change and how organisms have evolved to anticipate these changes. For although we mask the effects of seasonal changes by warming our homes, lighting our nights, preserving foods and storing water, we cannot hide from them.
How the Shifting Patterns of Your Life Reveal His Purposes for You
Author: Richard Blackaby
What season of life are you in? Each of us goes through periods of life that have a certain character—a few months or a few years, good times or difficult circumstances, times of brilliant joy or periods of dark clouds. Often we say, “It’s just the season of life I’m in.” But did you know that just as God has purposes for the seasons of nature, he also uses seasons in your life to grow you, work with you, and talk to you? Richard Blackaby explains in The Seasons of God how understanding the principles of the seasons can offer us hope, direction, insight, and intimacy with God himself. It’s a thoughtful exploration of God’s patterns at work in our lives—how His will is being carried out in the best way…at the best time. Your plans, your relationships, your career, your ministry—all have their unique God-intended moment. God’s Word expresses it this way: “For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.” So what’s your season of life? And what is God telling you through the season you’re in?
