Like Gold on the Trees
Soon, too soon, the leaves will color and fall. There is a significant symbolism in the seasons, like there is in all of creation. From the scriptures, "...this life is the time for men to prepare to meet God" (Alma 34:32) and "in an hour when ye think not the summer shall be past, and the harvest ended, and your souls not saved." Doctrine & Covenants 45:2 (see also Jeremiah 8:19-20).
