This Season

The trees are bare, limbs waving in the breeze.
Cottonwoods seem to stretch toward the sky.
Oaks seem to hold on to their leaves with ease.
The evergreens stand out and don't seem shy.

This is Fall getting ready for Winter.
We bundle up and cover heads and hands
And start shopping, thoughts of gifts at center.
We used to hear Salvation Army bands.

Winter with its icy fingers of sleet
And snow will soon cover grass that's still green.
Brrr! will be the greeting as neighbors meet.
Decorations and snowplows are now seen.

But all of that will fade from our wee minds
As we think of why we're celebrating.
Thanksgiving and Christmas are just the kinds
of occasions that hold great, great meaning.

We gather to thank God for His blessings,
To think of the Reason for the Season -
That Christ came for us - our praises mounting
As we give Him our hearts with no treason.
