Winner of the Holloween Hole

First, I will never look at this tree the same way. All your delightful comments almost had me, I said almost, on my belly peeking into the hole in the root at the bottom of this picture.

The root is hollow. A bed of carpenter ants lived there until I tripped over it a few months ago. Ugh, gross and all that! After a can of bug spray and then I think I used a bottle of Clorox they were gone. Now small little mushrooms grow there from time to time.

Your comments were all fun and clever, it was difficult to choose. Please go back and read them from the post below, you'll love'em. Since it was a Halloween genre, that helped me narrow it down, but was still hard. Thank you all for playing along! So anyway, with out further annoying chit-chat the winner is Alicia!  

"Would not God find this out? For He knows the secrets of the heart." Psalm 44:21

Roots are the life of the tree. My heart leads my actions. God knows the rotten areas and those that are infested with the "uglies." He will never trip over my doings and be surprised. He knows. AND He brings out the bug spray.

Lord, I don't want any holes in my soul.

Oh Alicia, hope you enjoy your Halloween gift!
