General This is Next by Margaret Something NewAs a rule , in New York, you can count on the seasons that we experience; winter , summer ,autumn, and spring. My favorite season is autumn, so here we are. I love that though the colors hint of something living that will soon be gone until another season, there is another promise hidden in this transition: everything will be made new! This has been a very difficult year for all of us. Anyone who normally suffers from anxiety, or post traumatic stress has been brought to new levels of strength and tolerance with survival at the forefront of all thoughts. In Acts 3:21 it says, ” But Jesus must stay in heaven until God makes all things new, just as the holy prophets promised long ago.” This indicates that Jesus will make all things new, what a relief and what an amazing promise!! Sad as it may seem- though autumn ushers in the end of many things from the previous year, it also comes with the promise that all things will be made new in the next year! A new beginning is what is next! Be thankful! Embrace it!
