Trees in Africa
Inspired by Elizabeth Kendall’s beautiful painting Abundance, I also dedicate this to the Creator of trees.
- I took a walk down a woodland trail,
without really expecting anything new.
A rustling in the leaves made me pause,
and wonder what was hidden from view.
I kneeled down and spotted a tiny, white flower,
so perfectly formed to bloom for just an hour.
Thank you, Lord, for showing it to me alone,
such a secret I would never have known.
