There’s Something Poetic About Fall

Between Sukkot and Thanksgiving in America, the folks up north battle power failure and freezing cold. We here in Florida enjoy cool and sunny weather, and the delightful influx of migratory birds. There’s something poetic about the fall season, whether it brings red and yellow bursts of dying leaves, or juicy ripe oranges ready to pick. It’s as if it symbolizes the changing seasons in our lives. When hard times come, we take comfort knowing they will pass. In a time of ease, we are humbled, knowing this too will pass.

“So I commend the enjoyment of life, because there is nothing better for a person under the sun than to eat and drink and be glad. Then joy will accompany them in their toil all the days of the life God has given them under the sun.” –Ecclesiastes 8:15, NIV

The Byrds adapted the following song, “Turn, Turn, Turn,” from Ecclesiastes 3:1-8.
