The Inspiring Vibrancy of Leaves

I googled the phrase "A picture is worth a 1000 words" and found a series of beautiful photographs including the one above.  Wikipedia states that some considered the phrase to be a Chinese proverb while others attributed it to Confucius or Napoleon.  Nevertheless, it is true that one image can evoke so many thoughts.  When I look at the leaf photograph above, I think about how leaves "change" colour in the Fall.  It is the chlorophyll that keeps them green.  Apparently, they really do not change colour, but simply show the colour that was there all along once the chlorophyll dries up.  We as human beings are very similar to leaves in that God has given us so much potential.  Although we may appear "green" on the outside, inside we have the full spectrum of colours just waiting to burst forth.  Let this Fall be your time to show your true colours.
