I love trees

God also must love trees. He made so many of them. Where would we be without trees? They provide us with wood, fruits and nuts. They're home for birds, squirrels, and other animals. Children like to climb them, build "houses" in them or hang a swing from one of its limbs.
Trees help keep homes cooler, lowering the airconditioning bill. They fight global warming, add nutrients to the soil, and help clean our streams and rivers.
They're God's gift to us and they bless us in more ways than we can imagine. Just think: Where would Zaachaeus have been without a tree? I hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful "summer" days.

I love trees too. When i am out walking I often study the trees. I look at all the different varieties and how different they all are. I'm just about to put a picture up on my photo blog, and it's a tree!

I love how trees look after a spring rain! All the leaves look so green! Last year we got the pleasure of see trees that were around when Jesus walked the earth. The Sequoias in California! Majestic doesn't even describe them!

I love too that I remember when Dad planted some trees and now they are huge! And that the same ones I used to climb have been climbed by my kids. Patty
