This tree root is on the northern periphery of our property. We’ve lived here for over 35 years, and it’s been here all that time, in exactly the same state you see it here. I marvel at its perfect heart shape and think it’s a little note from God to remind me of his undying love.

I borrowed the title from the refrain of a hymn written by Father John Foley, S.J.
Here are the lyrics of that hymn:

Dwelling Place
by John Foley, SJ

I fall on my knees to the Father of Jesus
The Lord who has shown us, the glory of God.

May He in His love give us strength for our living
The strength of His Spirit, the glory of God.

May Christ find a dwelling place of faith in our hearts
May our lives be rooted in love, rooted in love.

May grace and peace be yours in God our Father
And in His son.

May Christ find a dwelling place of faith in our hearts
May our lives be rooted in love, rooted in love.

    Either way, I see a sweet reminder of God’s love for us…I collect various types of wood such as driftwood for my flower garden, I know this must be a treasure for you!

    God certainly found the best place to create His perfect heart of nature which is Rooted in Love…on “your” property. What a marvelous token of His love to you. We thank you for sharing this with us as it is a wonderful find and a beautiful photograph. Love it.

    The frame was nice, but this looks so much more natural.
