As beautiful as Autumn is, it can be a challenge as we watch the beauty of summer fade away. Leaves fall from the trees, well loved plants and flowers dry up and die. Oh, I know it is the 'circle of life.' But that is hard sometimes. It is the perfect reminder of our lives.
Time marches on. The cycle of Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall - continues to spiral around us as we watch new life arrive around us, with it's colorful and joyful youth. It grows and matures and replicates itself, until it is eventually aged and falling apart and finally is gone - only to be replaced by new life again.
Change is hard. Yes, change is very hard. And although there is such grace and beauty in this 'circle' . . . there is sadness as well.
Everything around us changes, except for Him. He is constant. He is reliable, trustworthy, dedicated, unswerving, unwavering and true. He never changes. He never lies. His promises are true. He is forever.
