As I was walking today on the campus of Vanderbilt University I was reminded how everything can change in just a few days. Last week,during one of my walks ,this campus was bustling with college students and the trees still had most of their leaves. Today almost no one but me was walking the campus trails and very few trees still had their leaves. The wind was blowing and the skies so grey and dreary, but I was determined to find something beautiful to capture with the camera. As I was about to finish my walk and go back to work I saw this one tree which still had most of its leaves and I knew it was the one. I am sorry to say that my photography skills are not the best and the true beauty of this scene will be mostly in my memory. When I saw this tree, what little sunlight there was hit it in such a way that the leaves looked like thin golden pieces of paper. It was truly beautiful. I am so thankful that we have a God that is such an artist. Each day I grow stronger in my faith as I see the beauty around me.
