Ash Sapling



Hiking along a trail Friday there were many Ash saplings along the edge of the trail. These were probably Green Ash.

Speaking of Jesus in the future; "A bruised reed he will not break. And a dimly burning wick H will not extinguish. He will faithfully bring forth justice. Isaiah 42:3

and satisfy the desire of the afflicted,

and your gloom will become like midday."

Grape Vine



This vine starts near the tree and ends up in the branches.

Don't let problems spring up near you. Root out the problems before they get into your life.

Micah 5:14 "I will root out your Asheirm from among you,
and destroy your cities."

The tree has measurements of:
height - 47'
circuference - 31.375"
Canopy - 31' 33'
Total points - 86

Jeremiah 6:1
"Flee for safety, O sons of Benjamin, From the midst of Jerusalem! Now blow a trumpet in Tekoa And raise a signal over Beth-haccerem; For evil looks down from the north, And a great destruction."

Woods Trail




Hiking Friday brought expectation to us as we were looking for an old Persimmon trees patch. Hiking is a wonderful way to enjoy life and nature. As we hiked, not only were we looking forward to getting to the Persimmon, but we also were enjoying just being out in nature.

Psalm 25:10 "All the paths of the Lord are lovingkindness and truth To those who keep His covenant and His testimonies."

Persimmon Fruit


These fruit are Persimmon. They taste good when ripe. But really bitter before.

Isaiah 16:9
"Therefore I will weep bitterly for Jazer, for the vine of Sibmah; I will drench you with my tears, O Heshbon and Elealeh; For the shouting over your summer fruits and your harvest has fallen away."
