The Red Maple

I guess you didn’t expect me to have red leaves. In the winter I looked like all the other bare trees.  You were taken by surprise in the Spring when I showed my real leaf color.

But God knew what He was doing when He made me in secret in my mother’s womb, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made and my heart knows it right well (Psalm 139:13,14).

Man looks at the outward appearance, but God looks at the heart (1 Samuel 16:7).

All my days were fashioned for me when as yet there were none of them (Psalm 139:16). Amen.
