Spring. Summer. Autumn. Winter.
Each season brings with it an invigorating freshness that mingles the jadedness of the season passing with the optimism of the season beginning. We who love beauty love to relish in the novelties and renewed wonder that the shifts in temperature and holidays bring to the imagination every few months. Each season truly is new. There may be only four which cycle on, but the seasons of this year aren't the same as last year - not quite - because you aren't the same as last year. Each trip around the sun welcomes untapped potential. Seasons, with their perpetual fluctuations of bleakness and bloom, seem to be in harmony with our humanness, ongoing reminders through which God encourages us: We have regrets, we learn, and we renew.
