All the autumn leaves have fallen ….. and winter is truly setting in. To me …..winter is a wonderful opportunity to start over. Just like these trees ….. it strips you down to the bare essentials. We all go through seasons where we realise what’s really important. We discover that we can do without many things we once thought necessary. We also discover new creativity that has been inside us all along ….. just waiting for a chance to shine. I pray for those who have lost a loved one ….. a job ….. or something they were looking forward to but can no longer happen. It’s not the end! There are many more pages in God’s book you don’t know about yet. Don’t lose hope!
