Here’s Janet chatting with me about courage and hope. Find out at her website how you can get her book FREE.
Yesterday, we took this photo on a cell phone at Duff Park in Murrysville, PA. [I apologize for the low quality.]
I really wanted to share this because the image is a fantastic visual example of survival. Look carefully. The red square shows where the tree started. Perhaps some rocks gave way underneath it. Has that ever happened to you?
It seems that for some time the tree was pointed down, away from live-giving sunlight.
But what happened after years of struggle and persistence?
Growth. Survival. Resilience. Vigor. A Healthy (though precariously placed) Tree.
How can you survive when the bottom drops out? Grow up. :)
My prayer of thanksgiving: God, thank you for this example and inspiration from your created world.
What are your reflections, thoughts, or comments?
Yes, I pretended to be Evel on my bike minus the crashes. A sense of adventure is an enviable quality, although sometimes a compromised frontal brain lobe can complicate the situations with very bad lapses in judgment.
I found this “15 things you didn’t know about Evel Knievel poster design.” Despite the thrills, his life was tragic and sad. That being said, there’s something I love about him. Maybe, in the end, it’s more about the cape and jumpsuit.
Share your thoughts about the man.
