'and it sprouted and became a low, spreading vine. Its branches turned toward him, but its roots remained under it. So it became a vine and produced branches and put out leafy boughs. ' Ezekiel 17:6
Walk in the woods: I really do love to walk in strange places so it was no different for me to choose to do this on my birthday, if not for the dangers of the unknown I will be constantly on the walks at all hours my legs could take me.
So I use caution on my walks and am very alert and have no headphones: I walk and hear the songs of the birds and allow me to not miss the things around me. In the midst of the talking I notice the roots of a large tree. Yes talking not by myself for that would be strange and crazy, although I do think crazy is fun and madness is the world. The roots were dry and it was only from the fall I could see the roots. As I ponder at the strangeness and wonders of God. Even a fallen tree has a purpose.
In these new plants different little trees start to grow. The tree becomes a sit and a shelter for all that pass by It needed to fall for it to become the shelter It needed to fall for it to become the rock It needed to fall for it to know how much love is a cost The fall restores faith and hope It is in Him that I am made strong in my weakness So as I walk I become restored not by works but knowing who Christ is in me On the floor I see everything around me I am made humble on the floor and I bow to You Lord For I see what Loving You is really like So I continue my journey And ponder this in my heart - create a clean heart Lord in me Thank You Father for choosing me

Thank you for stopping by Pray you have a wonderful week 🙂 And I also pray that this verse refreshes you this week: 'However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace. ' Acts 20:24 NIV
