When things go crazy

And life goes awry,

God sees your tears

And He hears your sighs.

The same time each year,

The leaves start to fall.

Enjoy their colors

Without seeing the flaws.

Don’t look at what’s wrong,

Celebrate what’s right!

Give into the moment –

Let God fight the fight.

Take a deep breath;

Loss is a fact.

Remember next spring,

The leaves will be back!

Lush and green is only one part of life.

Falling leaves reflect nature’s strife.

When the time comes, we must shed

That which is finished; that which is dead.

Falling leaves allow new growth to break through.

You may feel dried up and tossed…

But, God is still working on you!
