One little leaf

From the March 2011 issue of The Christian Science Journal

One little leaf is waving at me— its fellow leaves already drifted down to meet the ground, performed their final dance of the season. But this little guy is hanging on— he seems to know I’m here watching, and needing to stay alert, to be cheered on, to remember I don’t have to do it myself—            it’s the wind            that makes me glorious            that moves me            that ignites my joy            that makes my brilliant light flash            a beacon to others            an act of praise to God—            as one of His “untired            worshippers.
