As the leaves are gently falling to the ground, I am amazed at how vulnerable they are. I was once an orange leaf. I know what it's like to be vulnerable. To do something completely opposite of what seems safe. It takes courage to let go. It takes a big heart to detach from something comfortable, something familiar and to embrace something completely new. I see the leaves undressing and willing to be naked, regardless of their size. I see the leaves making choices, tough ones. I see the leaves leaving old friendships that were once draining and often negative. I see the leaves being fearful but willing to put one step in front of the other. I see the leaves moving ahead in faith even when no one else is. I see the leaves trusting in something bigger than themselves. I see the leaves slowly surrendering control. I see the leaves shedding all that was dead and willing to become new. I see the leaves admitting that life is not perfect but life is a gift. I see the leaves saying, "Yes!" I see the leaves changing, growing, believing, revealing and rejoicing. I see the leaves transforming and #wow.....look at GOD. So faithful to keep His word. For everything there is a season. In this season, let's be a leaf. Dare to let go...begin today...now...letting go of the old and putting on the new. Yeah...let's be a leaf!
