Delicate birds with brilliantly colored feathers trill graceful songs amid the spreading treetops. In this still, calm setting, God-given beauty enfolds my life.
The trees stand in quietude in the midst of this bountiful array of life. Every being in the forest, regardless of how small or seemingly insignificant, has its place. Every manifestation of God's creative impulse works in harmony. And with all of this diversity of life gathered here under the blue and peaceful sky, the forest is complete.
These trees were here before I was born, and in all probability, will remain here long after I am gone. They have seen many storms. They have experienced withering heat and brutal cold. Year after year, they stand in regal witness to the majesty of God.
I pray that I may be more like the trees, knowing when to be silent, and how to stand strong.
