Something easier said than done. When a change occurs in nature there is a give and take. The leaves change their colors but then begins the dying process. Eventually the old is replaced with the new.
In this new year that is now upon us we can decide to change for the better. It is never an easy process and it doesn't take place over night. Yet the beginning can start today, now, and it can forever grow within us.
This image was taken a week ago and already the trees are bare. Before long the buds will swell and new life will spring forth.
