This past weekend, my wife and I traveled around the Western Kentucky and Middle Tennessee areas seeing both new sights as well as visiting old stomping grounds... The beauty of the area, especially during this transitional time of the year, was spectacular and a clear reminder that God can make even the changing of seasons an amazingly beautiful experience...

 

Much like the trees that shed their old leaves before the hard winter of preparation that leads to the Spring bloom, we too should look at times of change and pruning as marks of God's beautiful process of making us more like Him... Sure, sometimes this process may seem cold and lonely with no foreseeable end in sight, but rest assured that God is making something beautiful in your winter cocoon... Just wait; Spring is coming soon!
