Learning From Trees

This week a friend of ours has been sending me photos he’s taken of the fall colors in and around the Northeast parts of Pennsylvania.  The trees there look so amazing in their blazing glory of colors.  My quiet time in the Scriptures this week has centered on how we can be planted like a fruitful tree when we put our hope and trust in the Lord and his word. So…


~ It’s important to have roots.

~ In today’s complex world, it pays to branch out.

~ Don’t pine away over old flames.

~ If you really believe in something, don’t be afraid to go out on a limb.

~ Be flexible so you don’t break when a harsh wind blows.

~ Sometimes you have to shed your old bark in order to grow.

~ If you want to maintain accurate records, keep a log.

~ Grow where you’re planted.

~ It’s perfectly okay to be a late bloomer.

~ Avoid people who would like to cut you down.

~ Get all spruced up when you have a hot date.

~ If the party gets boring or dangerous, just leaf.

~ You can’t hide your true colors as you approach the autumn of your life.

~ It’s more important to be honest than poplar.

“Blessed is the man that trusts in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.  For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreads out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.” Jeremiah 17:7-8
