God’s design is so amazing. Just take a moment to feast your eyes on a tree. The trunk is so sturdy it can support the weight of all the branches, the leaves and every living thing that inhabits it. The branches have a weathered look, but come to life in the spring as new growth appears. The leaves are a masterpiece of design. Every line, shape and pattern define them as unique and individual. Look at it closely and notices how the veins resemble our own veins, carry the lifeblood to every other part. God gives us so much beauty to enjoy every day. We simply need to look for it.
A tree stands firmly in the ground, though ancient yet unworthy,
Its life has spanned a hundred years, its limbs cried out for mercy,
The sun has withered, burnt and scorched, the wind has taken its toll,
The snow filled skies and frosty air are God’s quality control.
In spring new life will come again as leaves bud forth in glory,
A canopy of green appears creating a new story,
In fall the tree must undergo another painful trimming,
As leaves of crimson, gold and rust upon the ground are swimming.
Beautiful poem! Kathy, your words remind me of the Creator’s divine plan. We see the Circle of Life throughout.
