Love from a Leaf–a Single Yellow Leaf

This is a strange question, but have you ever spotted something and wondered if it was some sort of message for you? Please say yes. This happened to me last week. Clyde, our yellow Lab, and I were walking down the driveway like we do every day, and a single yellow leaf appeared to be suspended in midair.

I’d just taken a beginner’s photography class at MONROE ART GUILD and decided if the leaf was still there after my walk (four driveway laps), I’d take a picture for you.

Even with Clyde darting under and around my leaf, it didn’t fall.

 

Common sense said there had to be a spider web supporting the little leaf, but I sure didn’t see one. I zoomed in closer.

 

How peculiar. Nothing appeared to be holding her up.

A breeze blew and she twirled, putting on a show for me, yet still clinging to her invisible cord.

Why am I so drawn to this leaf? There are so many others in the woods.

I know it sounds was weird, but I felt kind of sorry for this lonely yellow leaf.

She was different from the rest.

God, what is it about the leaf? 

Then last night I heard this song…

“So I Can Just Be Me.”

 

That’s it!

This little yellow leaf is just being herself.

Who she was created to be.

She’s trusting God to be God.

And that, my sweet friends, brings Him glory.

Each of us is unique.

Special.

A masterpiece.

We are “…fearfully and wonderfully made…” Psalms 139:14 KJ

Do you ever think about leaves? Please tell me you do!

Love,

Julie
