Pennsylvania's annual beauty is neatly framed into four seasons. Of these seasons autumn has grounded its roots deepest in my delight. Naturally, the rapture of fiery hue captivates my sight; but more so, the Lord's goodness captivates my heart. After the struggle in the birth of spring and in the heat of summer, autumn surrounds me with a sense of completeness. The fruits of labor have ripened! Autumn portrays the Final Harvest when in radiant glory Christ shall return for His own. Thanksgiving, matchless to any other gratitude, will define each soul –now fully complete with Him. The promise of redeeming grace shall surely be satisfied.
"Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. now unto Him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, to the wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen." Jude 21;24;25
