Storybook Tree
Exodus 15:2
The Lord is my Strength an
d my Song, and He has become
my Salvation; this is my God, and I will praise Him, my
fathers God, and I will exalt Him.

Driving to work this morning I noticed a tree in the neighbors
yard that I had never noticed before.  The tree has been there
for the ten years that we have lived next door to them.  
Probably the tree was there fifty years prior to that and there
is a good chance that it was there a hundred years before that.

Why this tree had never gained my attention before is beyond
me.  It is a tree of great character and strength that I
immediately named  “Storybook Tree”.

It is amazing the marvelous things that our God does.  Putting
an absolutely perfect tree in my neighbors yard and making
this mornings sunlight so that I would notice this absolutely
perfect tree.  God in His Power, today, showed me this
tremendously old tree that I have gone past at least 7,762
times so that I could Praise Him for the Great and Wonderful
Things that He does! My parents found their Strength and
Salvation in God.  God is now my God and I find the same
Strength and Salvation that my parents found and it is there for
my children to do the same.

sing to You Heavenly Lord!  I Praise You with all that is
in me!  Be my Strength and Salvation!  Let me shout Your
Name, YHW
H!  Forgive me for the times that I do not
Praise You the way that You so deserve.  I ask that I can
be a useful servant to You helping to spread Your Word
to those in need.  In YOUR GREAT NAME I pray, AMEN!
