I picked up this leaf in the road on my morning walk.....
.....and it reminded me of me.
The leaf has lost a lot of it's vitality;
no longer fresh and vibrant.
It's a little ragged and torn and wrinkled,
but still very much a leaf. It's no longer providing shade, but has fallen from its perch high in some oak tree to land right in the road in front of me to provide me with a life lesson.
I'm not as swift on my feet as I once was and definitely no longer have a youthful look about me. I am a little worse for the wear these days, but I can still be useful in God's kingdom. He went on to remind me of that when I came upon my friend walking and I could tell something was wrong. I was able to walk her back home and get her into her house before she fell. What if I hadn't been right there, right at that time?
Nothing bad might have happened.
I also wouldn't have learned a valuable lesson.
We're valuable to God, no matter our age.
He can still use us!
Let us NEVER forget that.
HOPE you have an awesome Monday!
Breathing in Grace,
