Where I live, it is Fall. Leaves turning, pumpkins abounding.
I am teaching a three-year-old about the turning seasons.
I tell her about friends in New Zealand starting to see Spring – yes! Today!
And the Spring will come back to us, too.
She gazes at me, maybe understanding, maybe not
This is all new to her.
How many years have I seen your creation turn? And known that the new season will come?
My soul waits on you, Friend, more securely than watchers for the morning.
More than watchers for the morning.
Restore my hope, I pray.
Help me to put my trust
In your unfailing love.
