What do you think of when you look at this tree?
Being from Nebraska, this tree looks to me, like it is sleeping. This appears to be fall or winter, the leaves have all fallen off, there is no shelter for birds or squirrels. The branches look weak and brittle, It looks dormant.
What about this tree?
Looks like a great place for animals to build a home, children to play on strong branches, and even a place to take shelter from the rain. It looks alive!
My devotion today centered on this passage from the book of Psalms, chapter 1.
