Seasons


Stripped bare,
they stand tall and stately
warmed by the same sun
that produces green leaves
when Spring comes.

And in the winters of our lives
stripped bare in the bitter cold,
we can stand in The Light
and know without a doubt
that Spring will come.

Glenda, this is so beautiful. It speaks of hope, spring, eternity. I guess the cycles are important and necessary and we need to be 'stripped bare' in order to stand in the Light. Really beautiful, thanks Glenda!

In the winter it truly is the promise of Spring that keeps me going. I am going to copy that one and print it out so I can put it right in front of me.

Beautiful promise we have from our God... summer and winter and springtime and harvest will continue... He is the One who will continue to make it happen. I like your poem.

Yes, especially at this time of year in Ohio, I need to remember spring will come.
But I also need to believe the deeper meaning of the words.
Beautiful photo and heart-touching words.
