Autumn’s Song


An Autumnal hymn
A morning chill
Not frigid

At the earlier break
Of dawn
Mother deer
Lead their fawn

To the berries at forest’s edge
Squirrels stuff their cheeks
As they reach for more
An ever slight increase
Seasonal momentum
Leaves fallen
So brittle
Beneath your feet

The night today will fall
Earlier than other days
The curtain drawn
But not closed
For He knows
More hearts need sold
Out for Him
Trust His warmth in the coming winter’s cold


Perhaps I will stay with you for awhile, or even spend the winter, so that you can help me on my journey, wherever I go. For I do not want to see you now and make only a passing visit; I hope to spend some time with you, if the Lord permits (1 Corinthians 16:6-7).


Good morning and thank you for all here.

The change of seasons stirs up feelings, doesn’t it? As much as I love Fall, I brace for Winter. Shorter days mean less sunshine, a struggle for me and my depression. May we all remember who never leaves, no matter the season. May we all realize the need we have to come alongside each other, speaking life and hope to believers and the lost alike.

In Christ,
