Here are a couple of thoughts to digest:
Did you ever notice how in the fall leaves seem to be covered in red as in Blood?
“In Him we have redeemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.” –Eph. 1:7
And when winter comes, though everything be dead God sends the snow which which is perfectly pure when newly driven.
“Come now, let us argue this out,” says the LORD. “No matter how deep the stain of your sins, I can remove it. I can make you as clean as freshly fallen snow. Even if you are stained as red as crimson, I can make you as white as wool. If you will only obey me and let me help you, then you will have plenty to eat.But if you keep turning away and refusing to listen, you will be destroyed by your enemies. I, the LORD, have spoken!” –Is. 1:18-20 (nlt)
