Autumn Abundance to Blessed Abundance

With Autumn’s abundance come the showering of leaves the trees shed.

 The maple trees bordering one corner of my property seemed to have been rather abundant this year. I had a carpet of 2-3 inches of that abundance that raked into 2-3 feet piles.

My neighbor had been watching the leaves  that were from another neighbor’s property,   shower onto my property.

I thought there had been more this year  than I had ever raked before.

 I won’t be stingy, though. I am more than willing to share the abundance with whoever may need a few…thousand…of  the thousands.

I was reminded of the Bible verse from Revelation 22:2. “On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit each month. And the leaves of the trees are for the healing of the nations.”

I think there will likely be  an abundance of leaves  since they will  be used for the healing of the nations in God’s Holy and Eternal Kingdom. 

 After seeing Jesus, one of the things I am looking forward to seeing  when God takes me to heaven is the tree of life with a blessed  abundance of “healing” leaves.

Today would have been my late husband’s birthday.  I may not be able to celebrate  Jerry’s birthday, but I know we will celebrate a greater day when together with the Lord in Heaven.
