Its hard to believes that already the Holiday seasons are upon us.... Our home has already began to celebrate our favorite by far! The birth of our Savior Jesus!
Still my heart is heavy with the whispers of change this morning.
After all Ecclesiastics tells me well..... There is a time and a season for all things!
It lead me to think and wonder how much are we like the tress that have began their great tapestry of art out my windows this morning!
The more I watched them I realized we have more in common with trees than I have ever thought before !
We are born in to this world to grow and change. To stand tall make a difference and go through change.
But how often are the trees overlooked until something about them began to change.
Sure we use their shade on hot summer days, or their ever twining path on a walk.
Yet for most of us it isn't till they burst into the yellow, orange, red, and browns that we truly see them.
I watched as the one in my back yard danced softly in the wind this morning. As it swayed leaves began to gently fall to the ground and reminded me there was more to the colors. It was being prepared for a change.
As we all know the colors wont last long.... The leaves will die and turn brown and fall to the ground and die. The tree will soon began to prepare for the whispers of spring.
Change.... We cant change, it's all apart of our journey ....
As I watched this morning I noticed the branches were like arms stretching to the heavens.
It was as if I were witnessing them giving God all praise even in the middle of the change.
Then as I began to see the leaves fall to the ground ... It was as if my Daddy (God) whispered. Let your burdens go and praise me even when its hard!
Oh my! Let that sink in.... Let your burdens go and praise ME even when its hard.
I have experienced the the good and the bad sides of change... I have seen it bring both joy and sorrow to my life. More than anything though, I know all to well what happen when we let go and give it to God.
The leaves never think twice about holding on to those leaves .... No they know if they let go something even better is on the way!
Even though I am not sure what the change is that I am sensing will be. I want to be like to the tree that can praise, let it go, and embrace the change ahead.
God word promises that He will never lead me where He will not keep me. I hold onto that hope....
For change is inevitable ... but God love is never changing......
