Let it flow….

“Our prayers for others flow more easily than those for ourselves. This shows we are made to live by charity.”   C.S. Lewis

Enjoy all the seasons of life, for they quickly come and go….

“Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down today.
Nothing gold can stay.”

Robert Frost

Nature: Reaching for the Light

A small observation of an obvious natural occurrence…reaching skyward, for daylight, for the sun. Something we should naturally do as well.

The top of the tree had snapped off at some point. But notice the side branches have now reached well beyond what would have been their normal length in an upright tree. Just an observation of what may seem an obvious response for the tree.

Upon Closer Inspections………
