The Wintered Tree.....


In the midst of the deep Winter, I find, myself to be captivated by the character of big trees....

It is clear to see the manner of hardships that a tree endures throughout it's limited life span.  A naked tree clearly validates the insult of how our "Seasons" shape a tree's character.

I am able to recognize that like a tree....WE too have many twist and turns in our life. We even have "seasons in life" to endure. Sure, we have seasons as in Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter.....but what I am referring to....are the seasons in our life that bring us to the top of the mountain or sometimes in the depth of a valley. 

 In the Winter months, secrets of a tree are distinctly revealed....Leaves have fallen and there is nothing that can hide the spindly, broken and sometimes dead branches of a tree. Nor, can each rough knot be disregarded.   

Yet, a tree continues to grow and it is during the season of Hope that....God covers each branch with a bounty of lush green leaves.  Once again....It's beauty is restored.   

Just like the tree....We are covered by the blood of Jesus Christ. During our difficult times....if we learn to wait on the Lord, HE will once again cover us with Joy and Peace...

Each wintered tree has a different story to tell....Just the same as you and I.....

Wishing you all a beautiful week ahead...

blessings,

I can relate at least in part to going through a 'winter' season in my life. I only pray that what was revealed in me was cloaked in God's love and grace.Wonderful writings Shug.Thanks.
