“To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven.” Ecclesiastes 3:1
Each season of the year has its own special beauty. Winter is quiet as living things rest and snow coats the earth. Spring is new and green as the earth awakens after the slumber of winter. Summer is bright flowers and bumble bees and sunny warm days. But Fall is my favorite with cooler days, red apples and colorful leaves floating and spinning down to earth. God designed the seasons when He created the world. “Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for the days and years.”” Genesis 1:14
Red and yellow and orange and brown,
Leaves twirling, fluttering, falling down.
Raked up in huge piles all around town,
Kids laughing, jumping, and sinking down!
Down deep inside a rotten stump,
Bugs slithering, crawling, forming a clump.
Staying warm and cozy, rump to rump.
Slowing, snuggling, sleeping in a lump.
Squirrels and chipmunks searching for food,
Acorns for stashing, storing, feeding their brood.
Furry bears roaming as a winter prelude,
Eating, fattening, eating for hibernation solitude.
The earth jacketed in a blanket of leaves,
Kids running, riding, playing in long sleeves.
The cool winds rush by like sneaking thieves,
Pushing, rustling, disturbing bright leaves.
What is your favorite season in God’s creation? Talk to your parents about your favorite season and find out which is their favorite. Why is it your favorite?
This week draw a picture or write your own poem about your favorite season. Afterwards ask your parents to share your picture or poem by email or Facebook messenger so that everyone can see them on the Kid’s Gallery and thank God for His wonderful creation of the earth and its seasons.
R.E. and Traveler can’t wait to see which season is your favorite. They love them all!
