The Tree That Never Withers

treeoflifeThere once was a girl who found solace from the heavy burden she carried by sitting under the tree. One day, she looked around and said “I love you tree but I am tired of sitting here alone.” In time and after much searching, she saw the roots that ran deep in the ground that gave the tree life and kept it from breaking when the storms blew in. Then she saw the trunk that one could nestle in to surround, protect and nurture her. Then through the roots and trunk came the branches and all the fruit and beauty the tree brings into existence. She then realized she is no longer alone but surrounded by “the tree that never withers.”
