Behind You

In my backyard, I see this: It's my favorite view--the golden sunlight on the golden trees--and I just stand there in the kitchen looking out back in silence.

This backyard view of what's behind all my living grants me a moment of worship because God has turned what's behind me--all that past--into pure gold. The memories of my whole life shape a landscape that transform into something beautiful like this. Over time, any difficult thing slowly dies and falls away from the branches of my heart.

What a refreshing way to describe memories! In Texas, leaves have not changed -- usually right after Halloween -- for about one week, if we don't get wind or rain. :-)
