Winter, spring, summer, and fall are God’s seasons. I have always been a big fan of summer and spring and not too fond of fall and winter. But lately I have changed. I think it is something about those leaves of red, orange, yellow, and burgundy that fall from the trees. I feel as if I have noticed them for the very first time.

I like taking a ride and watching people setting out pumpkins in the yard with hay bales and planting mums in the yard. I am looking forward to getting some lavender and yellow mums myself for my yard and a few pumpkins.

The other day, one of my friends and I went to visit a friend who has been ill, and in her neighborhood, we noticed many yards decorated for fall. I don’t remember seeing this too much in the past. Have I missed this season all these years, or is it just that as I get older I appreciate God’s world just a little more?

The latter is what I concluded. The Bible says, “This is day that the Lord hath made, and I will rejoice in it.” Each day He has given me beauty to enjoy, so I think I should sit back and take in this glorious creation.

God is the best artist in the world, for only He can create such different themes. We see many artists that try to capture the seasons on their canvases by painting what they see around them, and they do a wonderful job. However, neither picture nor paint could ever replace the real thing splashed across the sky and spilled over the earth like the Master’s display of His finest artwork. God’s creativity is unmatched, for every day is different, just like every snowflake in winter.

When people say there is no God, I know they do not see with eyes like mine. They must see a plain, white canvas or a black drop cloth and not the blue skies that fade into light pink in the evening. Nor do they see the flowers that no paint on any artist’s palate could attempt to match or the trees that were each given a certain color leaf to change into when autumn arrives. ‘No God,’ they say. It is just that they do not know the Master of the seasons, the One who has created such magnificent displays of perfect art.

Instead of always looking forward to the summer and springtime, I have decided to enjoy the Master’s autumn masterpiece for the rest of my life.



The Mausoleum at Roberts Cemetery


Construction has begun on The Mausoleum at Roberts Cemetery. A covered pavilion Mausoleum will be completed in the cemetery with the pavilion available for all committal services. Our Roberts Cemetery is one of Anderson County’s oldest cemeteries, rich with historic charm and natural beauty. Established in 1789, a South Carolina Historic Marker details the early beginnings of Roberts Cemetery and is the final resting place for many of our loved ones and for many Veterans dating back to the Revolutionary War. Another notable grace is that of Anna Anderson Hunter, daughter of Revolutionary War veteran and Founder of Anderson County, General Robert Anderson.

Roberts Cemetery is the only community cemetery in western Anderson County.  For more information please contact the church office at 864-225-9950 and you will be directed to the proper person for more information.
