To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven. Ecclesiastes 3:1 NKJV
Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night. They will serve as signs for seasons and for the days and years.” Genesis 1:14 CSB
Fall is one of my favorite seasons! I love the cooler weather, the leaves changing color, watching squirrels scurrying around to collect acorns for winter, and drinking hot chocolate by the fireplace with my family.
Our verses for today tell us that God created and designed our seasons and how they would work. Everything has a purpose and is part of God’s amazing design.
On the fourth day of creation, God made the sun and the moon and all the stars in the sky. But God also designed that the planets, including our earth would travel around the sun. It is this path that our earth takes around the sun that determines our seasons. Happy Fall!
The Wonders of Fall
The nights begin to cool and lengthen.
Sunlight fades as fall colors strengthen.
Reds and yellows, oranges and browns,
Trees tops adorned with colorful crowns.
Deer change coats from brown to gray.
Squirrels gather acorns to pack away.
Apples are ripe and ready to be picked.
Pumpkins in fields, this one is perfect.
Blackbirds overhead in giant flocks,
Flying south, with tweets and squawks.
Time to pull out coats on cold fall nights.
It gets dark so early, turn on some lights.
God’s design is in every part of creation, in every part of the fall season.
Blessings as you enjoy the wonderful design of God’s fall season!
Fun facts about God’s design:
Leaves change color when the green part, chlorophyll, stops making food as the days get shorter and cooler. As the chlorophyll fades, other chemicals in the leaf begin to show. One chemical produces red leaves and another one the yellows and oranges.
A deer’s coat changes to a darker color in the fall so that it can absorb more sunlight and warmth.
The seasons are opposite in the northern and southern hemispheres (top half and bottom half of the earth). When you are having summer (June, July, and August), children in the southern hemisphere are having winter.
