There is a Season
One of the scariest drives on our Colorado trip was the mountain road between Silverton and Ouray. We entered low fog and sleet as the altitude rose. The turns along the canyons and gorges would have been difficult in good weather conditions, but this mix was terrifying. However, as we proceeded into some visibility the aspens with snow-covered evergreens popping through seemed to shout the changing of the season from autumn to winter. The snow on golden aspen reminded me of one of my favorite scriptures and songs:
To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven.
In our family lately there have been hardships and joys. But God goes with us always. Here is some of our list:
Having a baby,
getting the swine flu,
starting a dream,
losing a job,
seeing a moose,
bugling elk downtown Evergreen,
seeing snow and ice on golden aspen leaves,
precious hugs from kids and their kids,
a friend failing with serious illness,
a new cabin home for Colorado friends,
a wonderful husband that still adores me,
and me him...
knowing that God never leaves us,
no matter what season we are in!
