Trees

We are trees
Firmly rooted in the earth
In the world

Our branches
Extend toward the heavens
But fall short

Mighty Wind
Uproot us, turn us around
Upside down

Firmly plant
Our roots in heaven, reaching
To this world

May Your love
Flow unconditionally
Through these trees

Hey, I like these simple lines and profound thoughts on trees. They remind us that we are transient but God is eternal, yet we will one day be transformed and be given eternal life by the eternal God! "For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you will also appear with him in glory." (Colossians 3:3-4) Oh, how glorious will that be. Praise God! I am using your thoughts on trees for my meditation today.
