Autumn is bittersweet

the season favored by so many

for glorious colors, sounds of crunching leaves, musky fragrances,

and a turning toward home


but flowers fade

and we know that winter lies at the doorstep –

it’s bittersweet



Changes come in our lives just as the seasons do

the season of birth

the season of growth

of maturity

of a turning toward our eternal home


seasons of mourning and of joy

seasons of gathering and of letting go



change can be unsettling

what a comfort to know that God never changes

His Word endures

His love and promises are forever

so thankful that He is constant


“The grass withers and the flowers fall,

Autumn Rains


four days of drizzling rain

it’s a bit tiresome

I’m in definite need of some sunshine


but God, in his wisdom, knows what his creation needs

autumn rains are for roots

absorbing and drinking in desperately

what they need to survive another winter


He knows what we need, too

His word on pages bound

a gift to us, his creation

open it and drink deeply of His gentle autumn rain

let the living word pour over your soul

it’s what we desperately need to survive whatever may lie ahead


“continue to live your lives in Him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness” – Colossians 2:6-7
