Fallen Leaves... New Hopes Will Grow

[A thought]
As I was walking across the parking lots of the University to the bus stop, I stepped on piles of fallen leaves with different brown colours... Some light browns, some dark browns, some yellowy browns and some greenish...
As I moved forward, wind blew other leaves separating them from the branches they were attached to. It was like walking in a rain of leaves.

This happens every year; every autumn; in between late September and November.
And the trees become 'bald', leafless...
Not really a pleasant scenery, really! A bunch of trees in the park without any leaves, but I think, if they (the trees, I mean) were given choices, they will still choose this way... Being bald in the autumns and winters.

Yet... they won't be stay bald for the rest of their lives! When winter passed away, spring comes! New buds around the branches, new leaves grow gracefully... a sign of a new growth, a new life, a new glory!

In the middle of spring, they will be ready... trees full of leaves, ready to greet the coming summer. The birds come and rest under the branch; to cool down or to continually live under its shadows, which gives peace and comfort.
And so the fallen leaves paid off for the better, greener and more beautiful growth in the future.

So is our lives...
There are things that The Lord wants us to give up in this present time; things that may be dearly to us that we hold them so tight and don't want to let go, things that have been around and so familiar in our lives.

Let us learn from the trees and the fallen leaves...
Letting go those precious 'leaves' may not be an easy task, but when The Lord asks us to do so, He will give us the strength to accomplish it. He will be with us and guide us step by step *even if we don't feel it*
For when He does that, He already stores something better, something more beautiful and delightful for us in replace of the things we give up.

In that way, we grow each day... better, 'greener' and more beautiful in the eyes of The Lord.
Let us learn... from the fallen leaves.

God bless you all! Have a blessed weekend! Take care!
