Lessons from Nature

The gargantuan tree lies in splintered wreckage just off Concord Road. Seemingly invincible in life, it could not withstand the surprising bolt of hot white lightning which cut the sky on a rainy day last week.

Each time I pass it, my language arts mind (trained to look for symbols) wonders if God is sending me a lesson. My huge independent streak is often challenged by the redolent lessons of nature set before me by a loving God.
