A sudden rush of gentle breeze brought a bunch of leaves all over me. I smiled. (yeah, felt like a kid/bride) Looking up, I saw a tree, with not a single green leaf, but with countable brown leaves on its barren branches. Surprised, that Chennai known for having summer throughout the year, could ever have Autumn/Fall around, I checked other trees down the same lane.

I was confused. I saw few dark green trees ( dark green showing its healthy but old leaves), and there were few bright green trees ( they were new shoots all over, and it looked so beautiful) There were other barren brown/yellowish of the same kind of tree( the fall color was so lovely!).. I wondered how they would feel. Wouldn't they be confused? Wheather to wither leaves, grow new ones, or keep the old ones. I hope they dont get inferiority complex!

It just reminded me, of times I/we get confused. Am I in the right place? Did I say the right thing? Did I take the correct decision? Well, what I learn from the trees, is that instead of thinking/worrying/comparing and getting more confused, it is better to leave things as they are and just be content and happy with what we are at. It could be Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter, at the WRONG time of the year, but when we know, that our times are in His hands, we could just relax. (Psalms 31:15)

'..They will fight against you, but will not overcome you.. 'Jer 15:20 '.. the fire had not harmed their bodies, nor was a hair of their heads singed; their robes were not scorched, and there was no smell of fire on them. 'Daniel 3: 27'He has made everything beautiful in its time' Eccles 3:11
