Artist's Description

Bonnie Barry took this picture in New Orleans after hurricane Katrina…This tree stood firm through the storm that left such devastation in it’s wake and is a most pleasing picture and idea of our Almighty God who stands firmly for us and with us come what may. Thank you my friend…This writing was inspired through the thoughtfulness of two sweet friends I met here on the Bubble. This is a perfect picture of those who reach out in some way and touch another…I am blessed to know them! Thank you again to my hand full of blessings Bonnie and Sandy!
At first glimpse you see just an old old tree, standing tall and bearing beautiful leaves…
You’ll agree that they come in all different shapes, in different colors and in length.
But when I looked I saw something different, something I have never realized before…
This tree is a collage of various things to many, but today I saw something more.
This grand old tree is rooted deeply, a natural brace against the elements of all time…
Its skin is rough yet still there’s beauty in every crinkle, every color, every line.
It gives of itself every second of the day, to many creatures it is a shelter for life…
It reminded me of an Almighty God who stands in our stead, every day and every night.
I looked on and beheld this tree’s branches, reaching ever up and out in it’s lay…
And it made me think of the saints of God who live to serve Him in every way.
This brought to mind some precious people who reach out to others, just like these limbs do…
And I thanked my God for His arms of care reaching out…through people just like you.
