When looking out my window I see the beautiful colors of autumn beginning to glow. Leaves are turning yellow on the trees around the pond. On my drive to church I’ve seen the glorious shades of neon red, my favorite. In small group this week, we were discussing how lovely it is to see these colors since we haven’t had a frost yet, and our temperatures have been above normal. Even the nights remain quite warm. So why the changing colors?
One of the ladies said it must be like a timetable God built into the trees so they know when it is time to lose their leaves. I don’t know if that is true, but I know everything is about God and His handiwork. So I wondered then if we will have seasons in heaven. Maybe seasons won’t really matter. All I know is the colors in heaven will be so much more glorious than anything we have ever seen or can imagine. Colors make me happy. Just like sunshine. Sunshine on cool fall days, or a day when snow covers the ground are my favorite sunny days.
Autumn will seem more real next week when our temperatures are supposed to drop to normal. I’m sure I will see a bombardment of colors soon. So I lift my cup of tea giving thanks to God for providing autumn, which to me is a teeny glimpse of heaven’s colors.
