Many in the mid United States are tired of the windy cold and snow. Yes, it’s been cold. The picture above is of a September day in Rocky Mountain National Park. The sun shone off and on, and it was a fairly warm day. Some of those trees are young, some are old, and some are lying on the ground. Trees, people, and seasons all come and go.
It won’t be Winter forever.
A generation goes, and a generation comes,
but the earth remains forever.
The sun rises, and the sun goes down,
and hastens to the place where it rises.
The wind blows to the south
and goes around to the north;
around and around goes the wind,
and on its circuits the wind returns…
What has been is what will be,
and what has been done is what will be done,
and there is nothing new under the sun…
[Nonetheless, God] has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.
— Ecclesiastes 1:4-6, 9; 3:11, ESV.
Be it people or seasons or any other natural beauty, may God grant to all of us the ability to enjoy everything that is beautiful in its time, today.
