The Fall

“Come”, said the wind to the leaves one day,
“Come o’er the meadows and we will play.
Put on your dresses scarlet and gold,
For summer is gone and the days grow cold.”
A Children’s Song Of The 1880’s

Yesterday when I went outside, the leaves had come down to play, spinning in the air on their way down, and were laying on the ground showing their last touch of beauty, which I captured here. Leaves have a more beautiful ending than beginning, and so it will be with us who trust in the promises of Jesus. Proverbs 11 says “Whoever trusts in his riches will fall, but the righteous will thrive like a green leaf…the fruit of the righteous is a tree of life.”
