Oaks of Righteousness
The colorful leaves of fall are a beautiful picture of transformation, from the green and brown of spring and summer, to the color of the fall. We get a front row seat! Just like these leaves, each of us has the opportunity for restoration and renewal if we will reach out and receive that gift from our Savior. All that is needed is to trust him with our hearts. There is nothing more beautiful than to see a life restored and transformed. A life that was nothing but ashes and defeated, now stabilized and demonstrating a transformed and renewed life a life of splendor because healing has come. You might be experiencing more then your share of lifes messiness, but today YOU can make a new start and the Real Life Center will walk beside you each step of the way. The hardest step is asking for help. May you know that there is a whole community behind you. A community that stands as tall and strong as those oak

trees of fall. People who refuse to give up on anyone and continue to give their time, talents, and resources to help. Whether you are asking for help or giving the help, may you know the work God is doing in the lives of many! Isaiah 61 (NIV) says it like this: He has sent me to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim freedom for the captivesto bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for his display and splendor.
