Colors emerge like hidden jewels, sparkling in the sun. The season is turning, and once again I contemplate the beauty and lesson of the deciduous Tree.
Its branches are always lifted upward like arms in praise. With a dark, cold season approaching, Tree surrenders bravely as it is stripped of its glorious coat of color and stands bare naked in the coldest months of the year.
I cannot understand all the cold days of this life, as I too have seasons when I feel as if my coat is being removed and I am losing what I once held.
But one of the sweetest reminders of autumn is that hidden jewels exist behind the coat– that there are “great and unsearchable things” that the Coat-Remover Himself waits to reveals to us– words of life and wisdom, the peace of His presence, and so much more.
As leaves fall, I am reminded to search for the timeless treasures left behind behind when coats are removed– truths from the hand of the Tree Maker Himself.
Sharing with Sandra:
The leaves are falling and the weather is turning. We can almost feel the rain getting ready to fall. Love your photos!
the golden, russet, maroon leaves are the best part of autumn!
I LOVE capturing autumn colors with my camera! Beautiful photo!
I too love the many colors of Fall and what an awesome script. to go with! Love it!
He requires us to call to him, that is action and trust on our part.
Oh, Lyli, you have, indeed, been asked to surrender your grasp lately. Praying He’ll wrap you in a NEW COAT of His Perfect love and promise. Autumn is my favorite season of all. Can’t get over the beauty that blazes before those “coats” are removed.
Okay, Anna, now you know I’m visiting all my S DG girlfriends when I’m way too tired. You’re NOT Lyli 🙂 But I STILL love your analogy of the coat remover. Praying for you, too, dear friend. Oh, my, time to call it a night before I re-name anyone else! 🙂 Hope you have a blessed week.
No worries, friend! 😉 I’m so glad you stopped by SDG sister!
Love the way you adjust your writing to the color of this time of year. I DO love seeing the trees filled with glorious colors. [What I DON’T like is seeing all of the them in my yard between now and spring. Oh, well…]
Anna, this is beautiful…searching for him as seasons change. Love this!
