Through the Lens of Faith

IMG_7257Trees have always fascinated me. With roots that dig deep and branches that reach high, I admire how nothing stands in their way.

They grow around obstacles and come in all shapes and sizes.

Starting a new year full of resolutions that may not always last, I renew my resolution to not let obstacles stand in my way. I’ve learned that life is too short and there’s no reason to not grow around obstacles. We never know where the detour may lead. It may lead to something even better than the direction we were headed.

Do you think our faith journey might look a little like this tree? Bending in all different directions?
