As I look around the yard I see rose bushes in various stages of beauty. Granted I do not think “beauty” when I see the lush colorful flowers drop and leave only hulls. But think again, if the bloom doesn’t drop, no new blooms will come. Very much like life’s cycle, isn’t it?
My friends look around and rejoice
Lauding “Fall” with grateful voice.
The hot summer is past
And cool comes at last.
“Give us Fall,” they say, “that’s our choice.”
I gallantly maintain a grin
And try to “keep up my chin.”
Enjoy the colors of Autumn –
I’ve really not yet hit rock bottom,
So, Grumpy, I’ll not let you win!
I strive against being crotchety.
And remember that my philosophy
Is to “Trust God for the seasons –
‘Cause He had his reasons
To set them without consulting me!”
Job 38:2 (God speaks) “Who is this that darkens my counsel with words without knowledge?”
This made me smile. Thank you. 🙂
I stayed in today as usual. Avoided the rain and cold. Didn’t feel very crotchety. 😀 I visited your blog; left a follow.
Oh these are wonderful words, Oneta!
Thank you. Hope you day is wonderful.
Without the fall, Autumn, there could be no Summer. Without dying to self we cannot be ‘born again’ into the new life only found in Christ’s Kingdom. Yes there is reason to give thanks through it all. Here Spring is like a disaster season because of the hail yet………..Rain replenishes the earth again as well. Have a great day! and may you find richness this fall as your hearts looks to remembrance of Christmas. xx
I’m thankful to live in an area where we do have distinct seasons. But, I do grumble sometimes – mostly in the fall. 😀
