If God had made the world straight up and down, we would have no seasons or change; just the sun shining straight at the equator all year around.
Instead, he chose to tilt it on its axis, making a way for strawberries, red leaves, quiet snow, raging hurricanes, spring showers, and sunflowers standing high in salute.
The tilt made a way for long light as well as long darkness.
The tilt made a way for change. The earth moves, giving to some, taking from others, but then spinning around and giving something back again. When transition comes, I’m learning to take small cues from the built-in rhythm of the world.
