ART & POETRY FROM PAUL & KATHY BOECHER
Sunlight rises through skeletal remnants of trees that once were lush with a canopy of green.
The sunshade turns from hues of chartreuse and emerald to rust, gold and crimson.
The demise of summer is right around the corner.
When the heat soars, so do our tempers. Our level of patience seems to wither along with the flowers. When fall approaches Minnesota, we know that winter isn’t far off and we want to hang on to every precious bit of sunshine and fresh, crisp air.
Soon enough we’ll have to hibernate again, along with the bears, for at least 5 or 6 months of bone chilling cold. It seems we have become natural hibernators.
Along with the decreasing temperatures, we have a shortage of sunshine and depression can easily set in. Spring brings a treasure of sun into our lives again.
When the sun shines, we thrive. When Jesus is in our lives we also shine and no amount of difficult weather or circumstances can take that “Son” light away.
