Just look at the exposed roots.
Jan called the trees DEAD.
One day in Spring I notice feathers of green fuzz. Then the smallest buds.
Shoots unfurl. Leaves fan out on the parallel trunks. In spring of 2018 shade is created. The space is a place to explore and be inside tucked away from sight. Yessss.
The two trees full of leaves in 2018 are tied to the activity of God.
The one who delights in the way of the LORD, who considers and takes to heart His instruction WILL BE ---
like a tree planted by the rivers of water... that brings forth its fruit in its season... whose LEAF will not wither... and whatever one does will prosper. book of psalms, chapter one, verses two and three
Blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD... and whose hope is the Lord. One will BE LIKE A TREE.... PLANTED BY THE WATERS... spreading out its roots down by the stream. One will not fear when the heat comes. But its leaf will be green!! And will not be anxious in the year of drought... nor will it cease from bearing fruit. book of jeremiah, chapter seventeen, verses seven and eight
The two trees are a word picture for me.
A reminder of whose I am.
Who my Keeper is.
The LORD is active alive.
He has planted me - waters me -
The trees are alive and green in 2018 and will be also in 2019.
