I'd like to think that we can all endure, persevere like this beautiful tree. Fraught with struggles, people and circumstances trying to thwart our progress, our purpose, our hope, our families, our very souls - too many times I feel like giving in or giving up. Yet . . . this tree clings to life, even seeks life out and goes beyond reason and science to make a way. Am I making a way when there seems to be no way?
Strong roots yield a spectacular crown of life . . . lush greenery, vibrant life, an example to all to persevere, to cling to hope, to strive for joy!
Never give up. Life is fragile. Joy is constant.
The crown of life is promised to those who love Him and persevere.
