about this story

I think that I would like to be
a Christian that is like a tree,

whose branches towards the Son are slanted,
in soil of God’s Word, so firmly planted.

A tree that lifts her arms to pray
when things are rosy or it’s been a bad day.

A tree that can provide some refreshing shade
for those who in burning trials, may feel waylaid.

A tree that in each and every season
knows for its existence there’s purpose and reason.

Poems are made by fools like me
but only God can make a Christian a tree.


Inspired by a poem: Trees by Joyce Kilmer
