AS I GROW OLDER, I can better relate to the Tree. We have the same Creator. We breathe the same air. We love the rays of the same Sun. Water is our lifeline. We are romanced when the Moon shines. I've been in the midst of many storms. By the grace of God, dreams I've lost in life's storms have been renewed, just as a tree grows new leaves. I've been challenged by the growth around me, and threatened by the the temptations of man in the soil inside my very soul. As I age, my body is beginning to bend, just as a tree eventually gives into the wind. But, through it all, I stand tall, proud, and majestic--for I have many friends around me. Yes, I am just as one tree among many in the forest.
