Seasons in Life

Seasons demonstrate to us that while nothing stays the same, there is beauty to be found in every season.

~Laurie Popovich

 Temptations in bright yellows, oranges and reds;

The beauty surrounds us, turning our heads.

This beauty soon fades to a crimson brown,

And piles of leaves fall, littering the ground.

Twisting and turning as they dance with the wind;

The stirrings, the confusion, the unrest within.

Echoing the noise of the words once spoken,

Revealing the heart scarred and broken.

Trees stripped and standing bare,

Nothing to hide, nothing to spare.

Facing the cold, harsh winter winds;

Woe the brittle and breaking of limbs.

Hardened heart, frozen for a time;

Desiring great warmth,

Waiting to be defined.

Rains steady on the earth’s floor,

Seeds being watered evermore.

Resurrection of life all around,

Colorful blossoms of beauty abound.

Waters washing away the lies,

Seeds of truth within arise.

Springing forth from old to new,

Anchoring one in “Beautiful You”.

Light lengthens a summer’s day;

Pushing back darkness, showing the way.

Bright colors painted everywhere,

Withstanding a Sun’s gaze, glare.

Shade welcomed, warm waters near, far;

Visions of clear skies, the brightest of stars.

Frolicking, dancing my heart secure, at rest;   

Warmth of love defines me, giving me the best.

The beauty to be found in each season is found in you. You are the beauty to be found and shared with others.

You are loved,



About Laurie Popovich, Pops of Life

Hi! So, happy you stopped by. Stick around while I tell you a little bit about me and my journey. I’m a daughter to Spanish parents and a sister, too! That means I love family, hugs, to share my 2 cents, music, dancing, flavorful foods & coffee. I’m a wife, twice to the same man, in a thrice redeemed marriage. I love deeply because I know no other way and it has filled my life with hope. I’m a believer of the impossible. I’m a mom of 5 beautiful and full of life blessings; but was only supposed to have one. You see, I had cancer; given 6 months to live when our first and daughter was 2. They’re a product of the impossible. I’m a homeschool mom who didn’t think she could teach: first, at all then, at different levels, different styles. I teach in what in my mind was the impossible. I’ve walked through many trials; some that have taken my life in many aspects, including literally. I have overcome the impossible. I’m a spiritual sister and friend. I love to share and encourage others in life to live the impossible. I’m a daughter of the King; a powerful Creator and Redeemer of the impossible – me - and I can be impossible  I love to…love people…encourage others…being a student of life and the impossible …laugh at myself… journal my hopes & dreams & pray to make them a reality… journal my fears & seek to turn them into victories…eat chocolate…cook for many & watch them enjoy the food & fellowship…go against the grain because you never know what blessing is there waiting for you…flirt with my husband openly because I’m in love…squeeze our 5 blessings often because I’m grateful & amazed by them…say sorry often because I make mistakes, stress & well, I’m a mess at times…I run to clear my head…and…I run to God because He’s my source of strength, hope, and love. I’m not where I was and I’m not where I’m yet going to be; I’m under construction deeply desiring to enjoy the journey. I know you have a unique and exciting one too, and I can’t wait to learn and enjoy the journey with you! Grateful, Laurie

  1. This poem confirms my suspicions that the author’s beauty plunges further than the depth of her skin. Her descriptions of attractions in all times and all things can only come from a strong heartbeat feeding the integrity of an old, but timeless soul found within..
