Stand of Black Willow
Below is a photo of while I am hiking to the forest. It is further up the bank.
A carpet of cottonwood is next to this stand. It must of seeded in during a different flood.
Willow can withstand flooding for a long time.
"And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock.
Just as willow is made to withstand flooding so we can withstand the tests of life as we have Jesus within us.
