ON MONDAY I went to my local shop to buy a newspaper and got into conversation with a friend. As I began to walk out of the shop the assistant said: “Don’t forget your paper.”
Later I read the leader of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra had left his 310-year-old violin on the train. It’s worth £250,000 but it was not just its value he was devastated at losing but the instrument is his livelihood.
Leaving a newspaper behind in the shop is one thing, but to leave your valuable violin on the train is another.
At this time of year we see loss all around us as the trees shed their leaves as winter approaches, the natural progression of nature.
The Bible reminds us that throughout time there will be seedtime and harvest, spring, summer, autumn and winter that remind us of the greatness and love of God.
Even though we may not like it, winter must come in order for the natural world to move forward.
It is also true in our lives for often there can come those times of bleakness like the winter but there are also the times of spring and summer to brighten our days.
Whatever season of life we are in at this time, we can have the reassurance that Jesus Christ can bring us the love, joy, peace and assurance from his Heavenly Father
