I love the different seasons of the year. Each one has its own special quality to be enjoyed and appreciated. In the spring, new life bursts forth and nature seems to have endless energy. The flowers spring up, the grass turns green seemingly overnight and the fields and streams are teaming with life. Summer closely follows with long, sunny days that allow endless hours to enjoy the beauty that the earlier season provided. At the end of summer comes the harvest when nature reaps the bounty of the activity of the previous months. Then, the evenings begin to cool, the leaves curl, turn golden brown and fall to the ground, leaving behind what appears to be empty branches. Autumn has arrived. Finally, winter blows its frigid breath across the earth and life seems to be on hold. But, is it really? In the winter, when the earth is frozen and no buds are on the trees, is life gone? We may feel that all is withered and dead, but God is still there, working beneath the snow covered surface to renew life once more.
