The contorted filbert tree...

it graces our backyard, right off of our deck, and it is where I found God this week.  
This tree is all twisted and gnarly and well.... truthfully a bit weird.  
It's rather a lot like me.  
I am broken and twisted and half the time don't know which way I'm going.
But even I can see there is much beauty to be found in this crazy tree.  
So it struck me....  
God made this tree and if there is beauty in it's warped nature, then there is beauty in us too.  
He is in his heaven and we are his beloved children.  
A bit gnarly and contorted yes....but loved.   

What could be more wonderful that that?!

Beautifully Rooted

    I always love reading what you write -- you have such a great way of looking at yourself and the world around you and then remembering what's important... So inspiring!
