The air more crisp
Summer set adrift
Back out to the deep sea
Seasons slip into the next
Not always a dramatic shift
Slight autumn sights may be missed
Fall wakes the overheated doldrums
His intentions to stir hearts gone cold
Make the pliable enough to mold
We avoid, try to escape
All the while He waits
And pursues, never losing track of you
I stood still on my walk
Under the leaf roof
Knowing soon, green would be aloof
His wind across my face
Preparing me to receive His grace
He knows I need to find my place
Browns, golds, intense orange
The breath of heaven
Preparing for death
Daunting though beautiful
Avoiding the icy fray
Some hide, some divide, some die
Whatever lies before us
Before we walk, Let us surrender,
lay down our weapons
Complaining and drunk carousing
Where is hope?
He is here
Preparing us for another season of the year
He knows your pain, your fright
May you call on Him
Under a cool moon this very night
All who do will be saved
Another day of life well- lived
Another smile meant to give
His love an eternal free gift
Not earned Just yearned
In the hearts of men and women
All whom He created
I welcome Him
As autumn blows in
I pray for you to receive Him
For “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” (Romans 10:13).
If you are going to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior or have done so recently, hallelujah! I ask that you contact a pastor or someone else you trust in the faith to share with them and seek counsel. We and His angels celebrate when a new believer says Yes! to Jesus. Then, life begins to change ALL for the good. Sometimes, the journey is not easy, and you need guidance and a Bible.
If you have any questions about Jesus, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Beautiful words Dear Julie! The changing seasons are hard for me, and yet, God does bring His fresh wind to stir over our souls in the new days ahead. Thank you so much for your encouragement here!
Thank you for letting me know change of season is hard for you Bettie. I am more pensive this year about Fall than in the past. More to adjust to. Starting real-time training for crossing guard job tomorrow. Have a blessed rest sister. Love, Julie
A truly beautiful poem Julie. I find all your poems astounding although I don’t always comment. I need to be better and more consistent in my responses.

Hi Tony! So good to hear from you, brother. Yes, I will probably post more poems about Fall. It’s my favorite season. I will tell Jason you gave him the best you got today. He is working as I type. Thank you for your kind words about the poem. I appreciate it, Tony, but Jesus is the true poet. In Christ, Julie
