Autumn

This photo was taken in early November.

It is evident that autumn is upon us, as evidenced by the change in color of the leaves. Fast forward less than two weeks and it feels like winter is upon us.

Just as winter is associated with dying and death, autumn can be associated with the aging process. Similar to the leaves changing color as winter approaches, my hair is rapidly becoming gray. Wrinkles are appearing.

The seasons also remind us of the circle of life. Summer fades into autumn as then to winter which eventually leads to spring and new life. I look around and see new life in my grand children.

God said “It is good”

Otherworldly

This photo was taken at the Norris Geyer Basin at Yellowstone. It is almost bizarre looking with the steam rising, the unusual colors and hissing sounds, not to mention the string sulfur odor. The word that comes to mind is “otherworldly.”

This morning, we will be celebrating the life of Father Dave, who passed on last week. And we remember that this world is not our home.
