Day One: TREE!
Reflect on this scripture:
“They are like trees planted along a riverbank,
with roots that reach deep into the water.
Such trees are not bothered by the heat
or worried by long months of drought.
Their leaves stay green,
and they never stop producing fruit.”
— Jeremiah 17:8 (NLT)
Question to ponder:
Where are your roots planted?
Do you experience times of spiritual drought?
“Sometimes I can sit under a tree
looking into the spaces
And wait on the silence…” ~ Steve Godwin
On your rambles today, or from your window, look for a tree. From my front porch (Rev. Gail) I like to look across the park and see a large maple slowly change colour this time of year.
If you are able, go and stand or sit under the tree and practice silence.
Imagine the roots deep below the ground, and remind yourself of how we can ground ourselves each new day in God.
Feel free to send me some photos of ‘your trees’ to post in Shorelines.
Take time to listen and reflect to this beautiful song, “Rising Green” by Carolyn McDade:
You could also download this coloring page of a tree and quietly colour as you listen.
