Dearest Friends,

                "O Lord, how manifold are your works!

                In wisdom you have made them all;

                the earth is full of your creatures." - Psalm 104:24

It’s almost Thanksgiving, and fall is upon us with all of its charm. Our gardens have been put to bed for the winter. The beautiful orange, yellow and red leaves have dropped, and the last of the orchard fruits are falling from the trees as we head into the fall rain.

I see God's creation in amazing ways this time of year. I grew up on the east coast in Maryland where we experienced the fullness of every season, and I find that I am still amazed by the beauty of fall.

There will be days, though, that come in a month or so where each one feels the same. Each day will feel cold, damp and cloudy. It will be winter. And while the season doesn’t exhibit the beautiful colors of spring, fall or summer, winter does bring its own beauty.

It's easy to point to God's goodness by looking at creation on the most beautiful days. It's a little harder when everything is gray and cold. And yet, without the starkness of winter, we don't get the colorful springs, beautiful summers, and the glorious colors of fall.

It's the same with our own creation. We have times when life is as bright as the trees in the church courtyard. Other days, everything feels like it's dying. But sometimes the gray days are the cocoons we need before we burst forth into the world in full color. Learning to appreciate the gray and the un-extraordinary, might just be the most profound way of valuing God's creation, both in the world, and in ourselves. There is always something to learn from life.

Prayer

God, on the grayest of days, show me just a small reminder that you are still at work, and I will show you my hope. Amen.

Happy Thanksgiving, Be Safe,

Pastor Denise
