In Spite Of Life's Seasons

(photo by Victoria Martin)

Counting our blessings in spite of life's longings...

In spite of life’s heartache
Summer disappears
Into a bold backdrop
Of autumn and years

In spite of life’s trouble
Flowers flame then fade
Where Hours, like leaves fall
Through memories made

In spite of life’s sorrow
And its kind prelude
Earth bears the fullness
Of seasons subdued

In spite of Imminence
And its Vast Unknown
Time holds no secrets
From God on His throne

In spite of life’s has been
Or yet still must be
God does not forget
Or forsake you and me

Life unfolds seasons
And God holds the glass
His Hands form the channel
Through which seasons pass

That's the thing about life; 
it happens in seasons.
What now is will not remain
Save the Love and Grace
of God

 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, 
Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.  
Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.  
And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;  
Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, 
singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; 
Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father 
in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;


Happy Thanksgiving to all!
