On Glory

I’m always caught by surprise by the sudden arrival of fall.

The falling temps and rising colors signal the end to the brutal heat and humidity I could easily live without.  But still.

Still, I find myself most days, in this beautiful state, spinning and gazing in wonder at the Creator’s endless resourcefulness in awe-ing his children into open-mouthed astonishment.

Change: I think that might be it.

We are restless creatures, and crave change even when things seem to have smoothed and the wounds of the past recede like fading summer.

I can’t get enough.

Drunk and reeling on the firmament, I try to gather it all in before it’s too late, before the next change, before it’s gone for good.

There is glory enough, I think, if we are willing to accept its temporal nature.

Because we are temporal creatures, here on earth.

One day we will drink of His glory, and it will never end.
