If this was my first winter in the northeast,
If I didn’t know about the seasons,
I would think that our trees are dead.
If this was my first winter,
I would think there isn’t much hope for those bare branches.
But I’ve lived here for almost seventy-one years
long enough to know better.
I know that spring will come again,
when all of these trees will be filled with new, green leaves.
Did you ever think that winter is a strange time for branches to be bare?
It seems that they should be covered with something when it is brutally cold and windy.
But, I don’t doubt that God knows what He is doing – because it works. 🙂
A tree that is bare and dormant in winter is just as alive as when it is filled with new leaves in June.
As long as the earth endures, nothing will put a stop to planting and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night.
Genesis 8:22 The Voice
You have arranged the earth, set all its boundaries;
You are the Architect of the seasons:
summer and winter.
Psalm 74:17 The Voice
Praise God’s name forever and ever!
Power and wisdom belong to him.
He changes the times and seasons.
Daniel 2:20-21 Easy-to-Read Version
