Today I’m grateful for trees. I’ve always had a fascination with the beauty, strength, uniqueness and wisdom hidden within the trees. I think they are such a special part of creation. Over summer while I was in the Midwest and east coast I was in amazement and awe at just how many trees there are. I specifically remember when my dad and I drove through Oklahoma and both sides of the highway were entrapped with thick brush of these large trees that I’d only seen pictures of in magazines and online. It was amazing! I felt so blessed to be surrounded by such beautiful trees. I think trees are cool cause they can be such a vivid part of history. Old trees might not secrets of the past that I may never understand. Trees can have such intriguing shapes and reach out in odd ways. Trees even go with the flow and change with the seasons in such a beautiful way. The best thing about trees is just how grounded they are and when you can see their roots peaking out. Trees are balanced (well at least they should be). Trees have such a foundation and health that they can reach out and grow. I think this is essential to apply in my life and it’s a work in progress. To become so grounded in faith, balanced in life, be able to be apart of outreach again, and to go with the flow and work with the seasons to see and be a part of the beautiful blossoms of spring. I am growing. Changing. Trying to follow the example of the trees around me!
