Followed the rocky trail to a top of a hill and found this unusual shaped tree. I look for trees that will be interesting to return to. The tree seems to be healthy and will live for many years. This Black cherry was growing among many E. Red cedars. Measuring the canopy was a little prickly as I pushed my way through the cedar branches.
Growth in life comes not by taking it easy. Or complaining about what is wrong or what you disagree with. Growth comes by doing hard things and sticking with the job till you complete it.
Romans 5:3-5 " And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; 4 and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; 5 and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us."
Trials if endured will bring access to God's love. And God's love brings the answers we are looking for.
