Reaching


As I've mentioned before I haven't really noticed nature. I'm not an outdoors kind of girl. Unless of course we are talking about sailing or spending time on the beach. That is the only time that I get excited about being outside and look around to see what is offered. I've had people try and make me enjoy the great outdoors and I think they would agree that it just made themselves miserable; more so than the misery that I was feeling.

I have noticed in the last year the trees and how they connect with the sky. I'm not sure what this signifies but I'm sure that this awareness is a message.

It appears to me that trees serve many purposes. They protect, they provide shelter, they can be beautiful, they grow, they die, they fall, they are useful in the modern world, they can be less than beautiful and they can be the source of too much attention. A tree is a gift. As with any gift it is our choice to recognize, appreciate, cherish, sometimes re-gift and keep them in the proper perspective.

The Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground - trees that were pleasing to they eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Genesis 2:9

This is a tree that I discovered about a year ago and I finally took a picture. It's quite intriguing.

  1. This is beautiful! I am not a outdoorsy type girl either but I do appreciate what God has made. I love to go hiking and appreciate the stillness of my beautiful surroundings.
