Blog Your Blessing Sunday #7



Go here if you would like to participate: Blue Panther


Now why would I put a photo of a tree on here and call it my blessing?

Well, see that tall building to the side of the White Pine? I live there on the 8th floor and those are my 3 windows to the right. This wing was built after the rest of the building so it looks like it is a small place where my apartment is located but in reality, there are 150 apartments here and this is only a small portion of the building.

Back to the blessing and this tree. . . the view I have outside this window is fantastic! (Ecclesiastes 3:11 “He has made everything beautiful in its time.”)

I can see houses and trees and roads in the background -- even the traffic light on a street the next block over but the first thing I see when I look out is this wonderful tree, full of cones and swaying gently in the wind. The three and a half months I have lived here, it has been there to welcome me each day.

I eagerly await my first sighting of a snowfall on this tree from my 8th story front row seat!. At the bus stop Saturday, it started snowing but melted fast before it could hit the ground -- I saw it on my outstretched hand!

Job 37:5,6 “God thunders marvelously with His voice: He does great things which we cannot comprehend. For He says to the snow, “Be on the earth.”

How wonderful to have that outside your window.

I love trees and greenery - one of the main reasons I could not live in a city or built up area - I need my space and my trees.

Happy BYB Sunday - have a great week.

I understand how a tree could be a blessing. Makes me want to say the poem "Only God Could Make a Tree".
