It would seem…
The new act of parenting is as fall.
Life as it were
dropping in dazzling color,
to a pleasing,
Moving fast into winter—
Barren and cold and strikingly beautiful.
the life rings grow,
the roots deepen,
The days stretch out—
Long and gray.
Will spring come?
One day it does! Buds popping, trees leafing, sun shining, winds blowing.
Eager as the little ones who lead the way to exploring LIFE!
New and fresh and gloriously abundant again.
Grace and peace be ours in abundance as we embrace the seasons of life in all their beauty. As we do may we trust that God uses each with skillful purpose growing us more into the image of Christ as we allow Him to work in and through us.
