"One thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead. Press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. All of us who are mature should take such a view of things. And if on some point you think differently, that too God will make clear to you."
- Philippians 3:13-15  

THE LESSON OF THE LEAF!                    
 
There is meaning and purpose and knowledge year after year in the falling of a leaf. Once more we see the great paradox of life and time.: To live well and greatly, our journeying through the world must be a repeated experience of death. We die, as the leaf dies, to the immaturities of childhood to be reborn for the responsibilities of maturity. We die to selfishness to live for others. We die to resentment against life for not giving us everything we desire to the glad acceptance of its hard discipline of sorrow. We die to sin to live to God.  This is always and forever true: If we have not learned to die we have not learned to live.
