I had a thought yesterday when I saw a leaf my wife kept from our trip pressed between the pages of her book. How rare and delicate that leaf is! It is more precious than gold to me! We will never see the same leaf again. Sure, next year more leaves will appear. But, not that leaf. God puts so many leaves in front of us to appreciate yet we as humans feel the need to dig for gold and a quick monetary gain. These leaves aren’t useless and invaluable. They were sprung to provide shade from a blistering sun. Now that the seasons change they are clearing to allow that same sun to warm us during the season to come.
As you stand in line to Vote today take a moment and Thank God for the leaves. That may sound silly but He won’t think it is. :) ????
