Beautiful!

What a beautiful wedding ... and the trees really did take 'centre stage' as should be in a challenge, even though I bet you wanted your daughter to have centre stage! (Assuming that your daughter did in fact recently marry in a beautiful early autumn ceremony!)

The message you brought out in the acorn and the verse for the day is strong and powerful.

Well done!

This is just beautiful.

Whe I frist read it, the first half just exactly filled my computer screen, and I thought I was done reading. I was about to type in a comment, when I saw that I was only halfway through! So the second part is a bonus--it's beautiful, too.

I like how you tied this all together. And the acorn by the wedding picture - it's always wonderful to see whenever people see God in the simple, every day things. Such an enouragement for us to look for Him in everything.

Practically perfect in every way! Can't say much more than Beautiful - it just is.

A lovely story penned with a sure touch from the depths of a mother's heart. Yeggy.

Beth,

You took me back to a place I had forgotten. I remember laying on my back under the towering oak and elm tress of home; laying there in wonder and awe of all that goes on with trees, the sky, earth, God, and little ol' me. I had forgotten that life was ever that innocent. Thank you.
