~An Hour With You~

Colors of Autumn

Deep reds of sumac, mix with the
rustic golds
And the glorious colors of Autumn unfolds
Pumpkins so orange so faces can shine
Jack-o-lanterns made by this child of mine.

The winds get chilly, there is frost in the air,
Waving miles of golden grains, and no time to spare.
Harvest begins in earnest, there is much to be stored.
And the harvest is plenty with the help of the Lord.

Yes the plants are all dying, the leaves are tumbling down
Soon these glorious colors will be just mulch on the ground.
Do you ever wonder why God made a season's death so bright ???
Could it be that He understood we feared
death, and just might

See the colors of Autumn and decide Death might remain
Unknown to us, yet not frightful, with so much to gain.
If God put these glorious colors here to be seen
The colors of Heaven must be truly serene.
