Growing up for yourself - Day 179

This is the cutest little tree that is growing in our yard. Is that okay to call a tree cute? I hope so - because I sure think it is! Anyway, as I was looking at this little tree, and wondering if it would survive, I realized that it would have to work hard to do so - with God's help of course! But it couldn't rely on anyone or anything else to help it. Not the tree whose seed it grew from, not the people (us!) who planted it - nothing but its own determination, and the rain, sun, and light that the Lord gives it...

“You’ve got to do your own growing, no matter how tall your grandfather was.”   Irish Saying
