Like a Tree Planted by Water

While visiting in Nashville, TN, a few weeks ago, I took a walk through Percy Warner Park. The trees there are just beautiful.  How anyone can surround themselves with the wonders of God and not recognize Him is absolutely beyond my minds ability to think or rationalize anything. Before you think I have lost all my capacity to think, I must warn you of my next statement. I would just love to sit under those mighty oaks and let them tell me about life through the years. You know people come and go but for some reason, God chose to leave some of them here for hundreds of years. Amazing. Well, I hope you enjoy my pics, but I want to leave you with this thought. "Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence indeed is the Lord. He will be like a tree planted by water." Jeremiah 17:7-8

A walk in the forest, or just sitting under the large oak in my back yard is one of the most peaceful things I can think of. What do you think about the mighty trees?
