The Greatest Artist

All the leaves could turn brown and hang on the trees until spring buds pushed them off. Why is it necessary for them to lose their chlorophyll and change into the beautiful rainbow of color we see every fall? God set this tree painting extravaganza in motion with creation and we enjoy it every year.

When we try to paint or create anything beautiful, it is but a murky copy of what the Great Creator did and does.

If we allow Him the paintbrush of our lives He can paint joy where there was despair, a clean heart where there was guilt and hopelessness, love and forgiveness where there was bitterness and hate. Why wouldn't we want that?
