Songs and Seasons Joanna Rae Lopez This is the story of us. It is the songs we sing and the seasons we live. The songs may be lyrics to tunes, or they may be more subtle melodies. Our songs may be the stories we tell, the journals we keep, and the words written deep in our hearts. The seasons may be the passing of days, the falling of leaves and the blooming of buds. But they are also the deep valleys we trek through and the mountain peaks we summit on this journey of life. And our seasons are the blooming of new life in us when we are transformed along the way. All these tiny pieces, each intricate detail, they are part of The Potter’s great work: The masterpiece of us.
