Inner Beauty

“Consider a tree for a moment. As beautiful as trees are to look at, we don’t see what goes on underground – as they grow roots. Trees must develop deep roots in order to grow strong and produce their beauty. But we don’t see the roots. We just see and enjoy the beauty. In much the same way, what goes on inside of us is like the roots of a tree.” Joyce Meyer

  1. So beautiful Sands, it reminds me of a poem I wrote called ‘The Tree.’ I do not know if you every read it but here it is, you are always embraced in my prayers my sister! Happy New Year to you!

    The Tree

    I often wonder if you ever felt
    The warmth of my love inside
    Knowing that you were a true joy
    A needed necessity in my life

    I longed for you to feel special
    To also realize I needed you so
    I wanted you to feel the love
    The best of friends alone know

    For within I shared a sweet passion
    One only you shared deep inside
    Never asking for anything in return
    Letting me under your shade to reside

    You have never turned away your love
    Not a single moment or day from me
    Embracing me within your friendship
    As I lounged lovingly in your shade

    And I thank God above each and every day
    For the many times we were allowed to meet
    As our bond will still be a valued treasure
    That within my memories I’ll forever keep.

    The tree was in my mother’s back yard, and it was
    always my safe haven when I was young, shy, teased
    by many others, bullied sometimes…Sitting in his
    shade always chased my problems away from within
    my mind, because i know he was a place of peace
    and that Gods spirit also lived within him! You are
    a gem my sister! God bless!

    1. Wendell you are always so Special!! You are gifted with words my friend! Thank you for sharing the poem and your experience under that tree in your childhood; indeed it was God’s blessing.
