the beautiful sadness of fall colors singing proudly before cascading to the earth creating a carpet of emerald crimson and lemon to welcome the solace and solitude of winter the humility of each season is the common theme of the songs they sing each season happily surrenders its beauty to the charm and grace of the next and so all creation sings to the Creator let us do the same welcome the constant change that this life brings and be alive to all that must die within us and be willing to surrender to all that must be reborn through confession forgiveness and the grace and mercy of our Lord "Yes, grass withers and flowers fade, but the word of our God endures forever." * and He is light and He is love * Isaiah 40:8
