Waiting for kids to exit the school, I sat on my bus with the window next to me open. As the cool, moist breeze wafted through the opening, along with it came a single, solitary leaf.

I started to throw it out, but then a thought came to mind. This little leaf had just fallen from a tree where it had spent its whole life. Now, as if to say, “Hello, I’m special,” it lay in front of me being noticed, unlike millions, billions, or even trillions more that clutter lawns and clog storm drains across the country. What if it was just trying to say “I’m special, and so are you?” It made me think of a passage in Scripture.

“Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.” – Luke 12:6-7 KJV

So, hello, little leaf. Thank you for the reminder.
