Accept the Curves
I know, I'm a bit strange, but the twisted limbs on this pine tree caught my eye. I love the artistic curves and twirls. Most pine trees that I know are just straight-limbed. This one has dropped some of it's needles already, but that made this picture even more interesting.
People come in all different ways. Not all are straight and even. Some have lost their needles. (Isn't that a nice way to put it?) But shouldn't that make them more interesting?
Say, I might even be in that group.
"Wherefore, accept one another, just as Christ also accepted us to the glory of God." Romans 15:7
Lord, let me rejoice in the uniqueness of each person weathered by their environment, heritage or personality.
I was born in cajun country. I now live in Florida with my husband Mike. My daughter Shelly, and Dan her husband, live close. My son David and his wife, Melissa, along with my three grandchildren live in Virginia. I love them all and thank God I have been so blessed.
I wrote tips for Focus on the Family "Teen Phases" magazine and have a short story in the "God Encounters" anthology. I have a story in the book, "Fighting Fear; Winning the War at Home When Your Soldier Leaves for Battle".
I once kissed, danced and swam with dolphins, and falcons have landed on my arm. Love my English Golden Retriever. I'm a sucker for chocolate and salsa.
