Trees. Have you ever stopped to think how much they add to life? There are so many utilitarian uses of trees. But that is not so much my emphasis for this post though you might want to look around your home and note what you would not have if it weren't for trees.
I'm thinking more of their aethetics and inspirational value even when humans had nothing to do with their beauty or placing. In the photo for this post, there are two trees that at their base became one and in the process became so much more beautiful than they might be as separate trees. I'm thinking of the awesomeness of trees growing by a flowing source of life and how that flowing source day by day and year by year turns them into magnificent creations that in turn becomes lifegiving to other parts of creation around them. I'm wondering if I can't learn some lessons myself from trees.
