At one time, children raked leaves; however, now leaves are blown onto a pile and vacuumed into a truck to be dumped in the land fill!
If leaves didn’t fall, then trees would have no space for new leaf buds in the spring.
Perhaps our lives are the same way, e.g., if parts of us don’t die and fall off of us, there is no room for new growth.
Reflection: Do you want new growth in your life? If so, what are you willing to let fall or give up?
