The Riches of November

I never thought much of November when I was younger: all rainy and blowy and . . . plain.

November strips away all of October’s pretty colors and seemingly leaves us with . . . a beige sameness. Beige fields, beige hills, beige leaves dying on the trees. Same old.

And then one day I was walking and sensed I’d missed the point. Sameness. God is the same today as He was in all the previous generations: forever loving, forgiving, graceful, approachable . . . available and ready for me, for others, for you.

And all of a sudden I saw the creation around me not a lifeless beige sameness but a golden welcoming instead.
