Just a few minutes ago I was out piddling in our yard feeling a bit overwhelmed with a lot of things truthfully. I sighed as I looked at this tree from the outside trying to see what branches should be trimmed to make mowing around it easier. As I stepped underneath it I felt like I was in a whole new little world. As the sun shown down through the green leaves I felt like I was in a beautiful protective green bubble of life. It was a whole new perspective of this tree I had never known. I took another picture looking out from the protective green branches. That view somehow made our large yard less daunting. As I stepped all the way out from under my green little hut I was looking eye to eye with this beauty.
Had I not taken the time to step under the protective shield of this tree and look up I am quite sure I would have missed the eye contact made with this beautiful creature. Yet another reminder from my Heavenly Father God to step into His protective loving arms, look up, and then look out with His perspective at what is before me.
Psalm 42:1 “As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God.” Psalm 42:5 “Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him my Savior and my God.”
