Beneath the Apple Tree

Last Sunday afternoon I took a much needed walk to meet a friend ...


Underneath the apple tree
To rest awhile, just God, and me
Apart, from busyness of life
From toils and cares, from grief and strife
And as I meet with Him, in prayer
A sudden wind, blows through my hair,
I ponder how His Spirit moves
Providing comfort, peace and love.

The gnarled form and bark of wood
Speak of a cross, where many stood
To watch God's Son, be crucified,
On such a tree, my Saviour died
Upon it's boughs, fruit, scant and small
Victim to winter's icy chill
Bring thoughts of wasted years and pride,
In Christ the Vine, I must abide.

I watch, a solitary bee
It's Hebrew name, applies to me!
And think of honey sweet to taste
Of seasoned words, instilled, with grace
A nearby leaf, a work of art
Reveals the Great Creator's heart,
Exquisite, perfect, by design
Oh, what a wondrous God, is mine!

Gazing up at brightest blue
Refreshed and filled with joy anew
From this unlikely sanctuary,
Underneath the apple tree



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
