As the days roll into winter they bring wind blown days, beautifully colored leaves floating through the air and eventually on the yard to be raked up later; and there will be left many a barren tree while dark green tree dot the landscape here and there. The days are shorter; colder and the hint that turkey day is not long off. Through it all my mind turns back to those wintery fall days when the leave were raked up and ready for Jamie and you to go trashing around in. Eventually the monster pile of leaves would make it to the tree line and after doing this several time, finally the last leaf would fall, and we left it where it fell! The function of the seasons continue, yet we all have changed, our lives float along different paths, we look back, but we struggle forward, each going the way of the heart. I miss those days when danced in the living room, made fun of each other, played games, watch the weather through the sliding glass door, ate pop corn, tomato soup, grill cheese sandwiches. How about sliding the groceries down the slick hill during the winter frozen weather, then we would sit down and slide down the hill to the house! We were clowns indeed! I look forward to the hills, the clear beautiful streams, the laughter, the face of Jesus who will light up heaven and there will be no more darkness and no more tears. I plan to take Jamie and you by the hand and head to the top of hill and we shall go rolling down, down, down and laugh until we ache with love, all over again!

"But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared he saved us, not because of any works or righteousness that we had done, but according to his mercy, through the water of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit"
Titus 3:4-5.
