THE SEASONS


SUMMERTIME IS ALMOST OVER
EVERYTHING TURNS AUTUMN GOLD


PRETTY SOON THE SNOW WILL FLY
TURNING NATURE BLEAK AND COLD.


EVEN THOUGH WINTER IS FREEZING
MY HEART’S ATTITUDE STAYS WARM

 
SUCH BEAUTY MAKES MY SPIRIT SING!
EVERY DAY OF CRISP COLD WINTER


RETURNS ME TO THE JOY OF SPRING!



He changes times and seasons; 
he sets up kings and deposes them. 
He gives wisdom to the wise 
and knowledge to the discerning.  Daniel 2:21

(thanks to my Evi and Melissa for the photos!)

I love this! I get a little down this time of year because I dread winter. This is a perfect reminder!

This is great, what a wonderful idea! It gives me an idea to copy this, do four pictures representing the seasons!! But I love your poem to go with the pictures! My favorite is playing in the leaves, an outstandingly joyful image!!!

Isn't it wonderful that there are four seasons? Life would get pretty boring if we only had one season all year long. That's the way I felt living in Texas... It was almost like summer year round... I hated it --and missed my mountains and the seasons so much... Thank Goodness I moved back.
Hugs,
Betsy

Cool photos and poem. And the verse was perfect to match the poem. I love fall and even winter, but fall is probably my favorite season.
