Leaves are a promise. They are the first things that begin to appear as God renews the earth after the long, cold winter. Leaves hail the coming of warmth and beauty – the promise that whatever dark seasons of life we go through, whatever valleys of shadows we slip into, there is hope of light and joy on the other side, so long as we walk with the Giver of Life. I have always been fascinated by the simple, yet intricate and distinctive beauty of leaves and what they foreshadow for us. Here are a few of my favorite shots:

that summer is near.
Blessings to you!
