Nature looks ahead to the next growing season.
While anticipating the joy of fall photos the image of winter lingers in the background. Cold blustery snowy days are the norm for our area and I embrace it for what it is and enjoy it for its own beauty. And yet I'm already anticipating the lack of color to capture.
In contemplating all this, I looked to nature in an effort to see how it prepares for the dormant season and found that it produces seeds with faith and waters them with snow; then rests in the knowledge that God will make it grow.
SWEET BAY MAGNOLIA
These berries remind me that I will be watching the brilliant red cardinals, bright blue jays, and rich brown house sparrows along with several others including the woodpeckers in the branches of these two tree as they come to feed this winter. Their colors will stand out against the white of the snow and once again I will be snapping pictures knowing Spring will follow.
I planted the seed, Apollos watered it,
but God has been making it grow.---1 Corinthians 3:6
