Cool winds rustle the golden leaves along the quiet country lane. I tread softly as I walk through litter listening for the tell tale sounds of scampering feet among the boles. Off in the distance I hear the warning of my quarry. Two slow squawks followed by a quick bark. The universal signal that mankind has entered the forest. I look up just in time to see a bushy tail dart behind the tree tops and vanish into the wilderness. You can almost never surprise a squirrel. In response to his alarm a downy woodpecker emerged from a hidden perch and rocketed out of sight. It’s just me and the wind now. Any other animals have heeded that squawking and ran for cover. The ever present breeze plays with the golden foliage making it flutter and dance to the soft rhythm of changing climate. The tempo builds as the creator directs from above and one by one the golden leaves take flight to complete the cycle of their dance in the air only to end with a gentle touchdown along the edges of the road. The breeze comes to a lull for a moment and then a sudden crescendo of gales picks the leaves back up and sweeps them away for the next performance. The natural life is never truly still for long. The world is ever changing in a great cycle of renewal and it is up to us to learn our part in the dance. Once we do that we can see that what may have seemed to be chaos was simply an order of complexity not yet appreciated.
Take a deep breath and give into the rhythm and listen to God’s voice in your heart and he will always guide your steps in this dance.
Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.
