Nature has so many lessons to teach us.  We don’t always pay attention

to what she is saying but when we do….we have a chance to share a

moment of clarity and wisdom.  On our excursion through the Grand

Rapids area yesterday, we encountered this maple tree.  How many

times have we sped past and not noticed it? Hundreds, probably. 

Why did we notice it yesterday?

It shone out its brilliant yellow light on a rainy day, saying:

Look at me!  In a few days my golden leaves will be on the ground,

so notice me today….right now! maple in fall Grand river Dr

We did. We stopped to take a photo and share it with you.  Each day

we have the opportunity to notice and appreciate the beauty around us.
