Under the Old Oak Tree II by Bonnie T.  Barry
Clear

Blake, a former student of mine, is standing under one of his favorite trees, an ancient live oak whose root system was exposed after years and years of soil erosion. Blake is six feet tall, and it’s evident in this photo that he has plenty of headroom to stand comfortably under the old oak’s roots. This old tree is telling me that life’s trials do everything to wash away our stability, but if our roots are deep and firm, we can still stand tall.

    Wow! What a fantastic old tree. Blake helps us see the scale of this mighty oak! One of God’s wonderplants, no doubt! ;)

    This also reminds me of the phraze “His banner over me(us) is LOVE.” How wonderful. What a majestic tree, and wonderful photograph. This reminds me of the trials we go through in life, and that yes we can keep groing in spite of them. You are a wonderful message bearer.
