Summer and Winter

The leaf had fallen to the deck below with its underside up.

Like a satellite image of an intricate roadway system, the veins that had once brought life-giving food and water to the leaf still formed patterns of strength along its blade.

Tiny water droplets glistened like tiny streetlights along the way.

The leaf would eventually die, making way for the new growth of another season.

A cycle of life put into motion by God.

You determined all the boundaries of the earth.
    You created summer and winter.

—Psalm 74:17

Summer and Winter

bookmark3-1-1-1-1-2-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1_zps08a42f53

It’s that in-between time of year.

The time of year when the thermometer has the most fun moving twenty degrees up and down every day.

I guess, for thermometers, it’s roller coaster season.

Will it be hot?

Cold?

Windy?

You never know.

The leaves on some of the trees have turned golden and brown, scattered on the sidewalk like coins in a treasure chest.

That seems like autumn to me.

The rose bush that towers above the sidewalk isn’t up for the change as yet, though.

Right now, two crimson roses are blooming, just like it was the middle of summer.

The bright red color highlights the walkway up to the front door.

Winter will just have to wait, at least for a little while longer.

I wonder why God made the seasons?

Was it to mimic our lives as we grow older, only with an invitation for new birth in Christ?

It was you who set all the boundaries of the earth;
    you made both summer and winter.

—-Psalm 74:17
