The Leaves Know
The Dogwood tree is flaming red. The oak trees are shimmering gold. The Bradford Pear trees are an eye-popping burnt orange. The Buttonwood trees are showing off their soft yellow/green hue. The Magnolia tree seems quite content at staying rusty brown....for now. I'm always taken by how October displays change with such colorful diversity and creativity. Daniel 2:19 reminds me that the mystery was given to Daniel in a vision. Daniel blessed the God of heaven, saying, "Blessed be the name of God, forever and ever. He knows all, does all: He changes the seasons and guides history..." It's good to know that when the leaves change, it's God's signature design - reminding us that He remains to be the Master Artist. And this isn't just for the trees. This is for me.
