In endings are beginnings
The beginning of a restful night.
In slumber is reawakening
Memories of summer put to rest
Stir potential for the months ahead.
In the chill is warmth
The biting cold
Drives us to the comfort of welcoming wraps.
In release comes embrace
Leaves release their store of chlorophyll
And are embraced by brilliant colours.
In death is life
The smell of decaying leaves
Brings to life treasured childhood memories.
In change is anticipation
As one phase of life draws to a close
The next emerges.
“Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it” (Matthew 10:39 ESV).
