Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

Freddie the leaf

“Freddie landed on a clump of snow.
It somehow felt soft and even warm.
In this new position he was
more comfortable than he had ever been.
He closed his eyes and fell asleep.
He did not know that Spring would follow Winter
and that the snow would melt into water.
He did not know that what appeared
to be his useless dried self
would join with the water
and serve to make the tree stronger.
Most of all, he did not know that there,
asleep in the tree and the ground,
were already plans for new leaves in the Spring.”
- Leo Buscaglia
(The Fall of Freddie the Leaf:
A Story of Life for All Ages

“I still get wildly enthusiastic about little things...
I play with leaves.”
- Leo Buscaglia
