They are just ordinary green leaves. I see them all the time when I'm sitting here typing. I gaze at them from time to time for no real reason. But today, they look different to me. They may not be swaying palm trees inviting me to a waiting beach yards from my home. But they are just the bit of reliable nature that I need to keep me sort of centered.
I'm realizing that it is all about perspective. Things are good here. A job will come. We make our own happiness. I will be satisfied with where we are at right now. I choose to keep on smiling. Those leaves remind me that you can't ignore all the beauty and goodness in this world. It's here for me to dive into and rejuvenate.
Time for me to go sit on the front steps and blow some bubbles with Jillian. Maybe a few of those bubbles will find their way up to those friendly green leaves that greet me each day as I type away. It's good to be taken out of all that constant stress and drama going on in your head. Maybe God's message of comfort and reassurance is sitting in those tree limbs and I need to let it all go.
