Tree of Life

When we surrender when we do not fight with life when it calls upon us we are lifted and the strength to do what needs to be done finds us ~ Oriah Mountain Dreamer

Just like a majestic tree standing tall in the midst of rain, wind, sleet or hail. It surrenders to the elements, sways with and leans into the great forces of Nature until the clouds disperse, the sun comes out and it’s purpose becomes apparent once again.  To give shade and a resting place for creatures big and small. To surround us with beauty and life. To give shelter from the storm.

So then should we be there for each other. To give shelter from life’s storms. To share the fruits of Spirit; Humility, Respect, Truth, Compassion, Courage and Generosity. To provide a Sanctuary of Love. To love and be loved.

      That is so true but I find if I step away from the maddening crowd, it becomes a little easier 🙂

    Beautiful! We are only a part of nature, yet we often forget.

      Thank you so much! I made that face out of cement using a trash can lid… It is very heavy 🙂 It has weathered a bit over the years. It now hangs on a tree in my daughter’s back yard.
