Good devotional material. Clear message and well written. Thanks!

Just as the worm mystified the experts, and the tree springing back to life after being outwardly destroyed, (according to the looks of it) unfolded yet another mystery...this experience was turned into a great lesson by the author. It is indeed like people...and I enjoyed the comparison. Very well written. Thank you.

Perfect.

I can relate to the opening paragraph. One year our aged apple tree held a lot of promise and within days was almost enveloped with webs that made it look like something out of a spooky movie.In our case, the culprit was tent worms.
The sixth and seventh paragraphs provide real hope. I never thought to look at what happened to our apple tree as God's object lesson. Very creative thought!
Only one thing I suggest: in the fifth paragraph Woe is me andwhat's the use should each be enclosed in quotation marks to set them apart from the rest of that sentence.
Great devotion and good thought!

Great Job. Congrats on the 3rd place finish. If competition hadn't been so stiff this time, I think this piece would have ranked even higher! All I can say is I loved it!
Awesome! How true and what a great analogy. I can just picture the newness...and the joy of restoration. :-)
