This Tree

This tree.

The trees which surround it.

Unique in its silence.

‘Planted by water’[i]

‘Finding strength’ after fire[ii]

Repeating hope by reflection through a forest darkened by embers.

Growing upwards in rescue.

Unhindered despite the appearance, moving towards ‘newness of life’[iii]


This tree.

[i] Ps.1:3 [ii] Is.57:10 [iii]  Rom.6:5/Eph.4:17-32

In 2014 may hope find you.

May faith, humility and reason all guide you,

as God’s grace is found to be completely embracing you.
