Today’s topic:  When Seasons Change

Beginning now…

When Seasons Change

The heart stays out a little later when the seasons change.  It  lingers, frantically capturing snapshots of moments soon to be filed in the memory of yesterday. 

Like a child fighting against the ticking of the bedtime clock, the heart tries hard to not let go.  When the seasons change, the heart wants to stay.  It kicks its heels and pounds its fists, “I’m not done yet!”

When seasons change the heart can grow wise and full like fruit in its last days of ripening in the glimmering of summer’s sun.  Or it can crackle and break, falling to the ground like a autumn leaf scorned by Old Man Frost.

When seasons change, the heart must follow.   It must wisk up its overcoat, hold its hat to its head, and march bravely into the blustering wind of tomorrow with all the treasures of today stored safely in large pockets.

Okay…your turn.  Ready, Set, Go!

  1. Oh, how beautiful. Yes, I can resonate with the heart wanting to hold on when a transition is coming. Why is change so hard, and so good? I like “Like a child fighting against the ticking of the bedtime clock, the heart tries hard to not let go.” Such a powerful image. Thank you.

  2. I love the image of my heart in it’s overcoat, marching “bravely into the blustering wind of tomorrow with all the treasures of today stored safely in large pockets.”
    That helps me to be more brave when I encounter change that challenges me!

  3. Thanks for stopping by, Brenda! Lovely to find another sister, devoted to Jesus. Love this journey that we are on together. Your post is beautiful!
