I took my walk this morning and saw this beautiful tree –


She stood there with her arms stretched upward embracing the spring sunshine.  She started me thinking about how often writers use trees to illustrate our foibles – “The Fir Tree” by Hans Christian Anderson – and our strengths – “The Giving Tree” by Shel Silverstein.

She made me grateful that God created such beauty for us to savor and for us to use as a springboard for creativity.

I hope you get a chance to enjoy the beauty of a tree today,
