September 11

We got a new tree in our yard! We had a small tree before but, several years ago, a big wind took it over. My husband and neighbor tried to right the tree, but it was never the same after that.

When I think of trees, I’m reminded of the verse Psalm 1:3: “He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.”

And, some odd way, today, being the tragic anniversary of our nation’s terrorist attack and the way we’re surviving as a nation, I look to this verse as hope – that, like the tree planted by the water, we can find strength in our Lord.
