Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

October 1, 2009

It's been rather cool here
even for the beginning of October
as autumn progresses toward winter.
I love all the seasons
but this time of year
is perhaps my favorite.

I don't look at autumn as the season
before a cold and harsh winter
but rather as a peaceful, joyful ending
of yet another glorious, growing year.

"Long my imprisoned spirit lay
Fast bound in sin and nature's night.
Thine eye diffused a quickening ray;
I woke, the dungeon flamed with light!
my chains fell off, my heart was free,
I rose, went forth, and followed Thee."
- Charles Wesley
