“In paradise the fruits were ripe the first minute. And in heaven it is always autumn. His mercies are ever in maturity. God never says you should have come yesterday. He never says you must come again tomorrow. But today, if you will hear His voice, today He will hear you. …
“He brought light out of darkness, not out of lesser light. He can bring thy summer out of winter though thou have no spring…. All occasions invite His mercies and all times are His seasons.”
Lord, this Thanksgiving there’s so much to be grateful for – not the least of which are fall tomatoes and Your tender mercies that know no season. Amen.
