Through the Lens of Faith

As a child my favorite season was autumn. There’s nothing I love more than seeing the trees change IMG_6313colors. I love the vibrant reds, yellows and different shades of green that accompany the season.

I hesitate, each year, to admit and recognize that those leaves signal another change – the change to a colder, darker season. It’s hard to picture the trees that have had such beautiful colors for other seasons be bare.

In my faith life I struggle when things are not going as well as I expected. I want my faith life to be spring and summer! But I think we need to realize that we find different things we need from the other seasons.
