A Winter Aspen

The stark sentinel standing tall
The winter Aspen gracing our yard.

Beautiful in its quiet grandeur
Anticipating
Resting
Rejuvenating
Readying
Embracing God’s ways
Content.

I take a deep breath
And enjoy
God’s picture of growth,
God’s picture of life.

My creation craves quiet places
Anticipating
Resting
Rejuvenating
Readying
Embracing God’s ways
Content.

I look forward to
Tiny buds
Delicate green
Fluttering leaves in summer breezes.

A story of God’s wisdom
Seasons are good
Seasons are necessary
Seasons of quiet
Anticipating
Resting
Rejuvenating
Readying
Embracing God’s ways
Content.

I often remind myself of these words I penned three years ago. Even in God’s times of resting, rejuvenation is happening. My desire is to embrace his ways, to be content as I dream about and anticipate and get ready for what he has in store.
