There’s a lot to say about a day that’s 20+ degrees colder than yesterday. Mother Nature needs to give us a break and drop temps gradually. That’s not to say it wasn’t a nice day; it was. The sunshine was brilliant, clouds were sitting pretty, and the wind swirled leaves along the creekbank. We know winter is coming and the signs to prepare are all around us. This isn’t our first rodeo. Which brings to mind a poem I wrote several years ago…
When a leaf hits the ground
It reveres the refrain
That life was well spent
With so much going on in the world today, we take a moment to remember those who are suffering and need rescuing. Floating on a blue ball in space, we are more than neighbors, we are planet-mates. We are all leaves on the same tree; sprouting, budding... Wherever you are, support peace. Martin Luther King Jr. wrote "Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that."
If you're looking for a good Bible Study, I recommend Royston Bethel Church, Pastor Dave Jones' dynamic 16-part series on The Garden of God.
