Measured the circumference of this Northern Red oak in 2006 of 128.5" The circumference this August is 137.5" an increase of 7% in 10 years. That is a 2% increase in the volume of wood. But it is a big tree, so 2% is a lot of wood.
Above is the picture of the leaning tree. This photo shows the tree on the left. It doesn't look like it is leaning that much. In the winter it is a lot more noticeable.
What we do for Christ might not seem like much. If we keep at it, the amount starts to add up.
1 Corinthians 15:58 "Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord."
Father, let me serve you with joy and eagerness.
