Little tree, I do meet, perchance, strolling on a summer day

Your fruit plentiful, with youthful blush you flourish

But what of these limbs when winter bares and night winds blow

No color then, nor overflowing branches to shade this ground

Harvest complete, or so it seems

Stark against the snow covered earth, icy crystals now your charm

Proudly you endure another season still

Sun watches as air so sweet interacts, calling forth this life unseen

Then thawed and bathed, such a bounty of buds appear! An offering of hope

And reminder our days are numbered

Another day will test our strength

O Wisdom of the Vine, You do remind

As long as we remain connected, we still bear fruit

’till harvest!

Fruitful Growth: “make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance, and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive.”

I love 2 Peter 1:1-5 when I begin to grow weary or lose hope in my efforts to keep growing and being productive and effective in my work and life. Onward! Yes!
