A tree = A metaphor for life

“The abundant life does not come to those who have had a lot of obstacles removed from their path by others. It develops from within and is rooted in strong mental and moral fiber.”

~William Mather Lewis

Our live’s are like a tree. In the beginning of a tree’s life it develops roots to gain a foothold in the terra firma and relies on the elements as it attempts to grow tall and mighty. As it slowly matures, it must cope with harsh winters, dry summers, lightning strikes, forest fires, floods, high winds, insects and rodents just to name a few. Eventually, it becomes a strong and lovely specie that can endure most any hardship with ease at it lives out its long and fruitful life. So, a tree, just like me will only survive if it is fit, unwavering and lucky enough to have all it needs for a long and healthy life.

  5. That quote is so true. People just want everything done for them and don’t even think for themselves. Snap out of it! Use your mind to accomplish anything you desire.
