We commented that there were no other red leaves to be seen, it was somewhat bizarre to see this little "heart-shaped" leaf laying all alone in the woods. I said "Hannah, that must be a love note to you from Jesus. He knew His little Hannah would stop and notice a little leaf like that and know that He loves you."
She answered, still in an awed whisper, "I know!"
Should we stop our important mountain-conquering quest to assume God would drop a leaf for us to see?
Maybe. Maybe this mountain was only a means to see the leaf. Maybe the leaf WAS the big deal.
And because Hannah took time to delight in the love of God, we all learned and enjoyed our time so much more, we remembered who made the mountain and took time to see and to stop and thank Him for His handiwork, and we conquered the mountain.
This God is our God, and He will be our guide, even until the end.
