When Autumn gives way to Winter


Autumn a respite from the heat, but a harbinger of death.  Autumn, the season where excitement for life appears after the draining burden of summer.  Autumn, the prequel to a fight for life.  A prequel to the dark season – the season where death takes over.

And Autumn gives way to winter.  The sadness of winter overtakes the fresh excitement of fall.  The coldness settles in and seems to separate from life.  Deaths grip closes in and life struggles to continue.

I wish Autumn could stay forever in my soul, but Winter takes over.  And I fight for life and desparately resist the sadness of Winter.  But the cold settles in and life seems like a distant memory from the past.

And Autumn does it every time.  It always gives way to Winter.

But underneath the sadness, the coldness, the bleakness –It still remains.  Underneath the blanket of snow in the deepest recesses of my soul, Life remains.  For Life is something I’ve been given, that Winter can never take from me.

May you embrace true Life in the Father today – the sustainer of Life in the Winter.

    Love this inspiration! It’s comforting. Comforting to know of the life that still remains when it seems so dark and cold …. and waiting for the next season.
