Our Sugar Maple
One of the things that I love is our sugar maple tree. It has never let me down when it comes to fall color. This year it is just as beautiful as in years past. I always feel like a mother hen when it comes to this tree. In the spring as it puts on leaves, the green after a winter of brown, makes me so happy to just stand and stare at it. In the fall when I am starved for red and gold leaves it gives us such a wonderful gift. I find leaves and put them in wax paper and stick them in my phone book. Then at odd times of year I will pick up the phone book and they will fall out and then I hold them in my hands and thank the Lord that He even cares about leaves and He makes everything beautiful in it's own time.
Today, I am so thankful that the Lord told me "no" when I didn't want to move here, I am glad He said, Just trust me. He has blessed me and given me the desires of my heart and for that I am thankful for the No's He gave me because, really, I think my life would have been so sad, if I had received all yeses.
