Through the Lens of Faith

Trees have always been fascinating to me. I love looking at the way the roots overlap and consider how IMG_1101deep they dig into the soil. I love how unique each tree has branches that are so many you can’t even count.

The thing that strikes me about this tree is the way the leaves are raised toward the sky. It seems like a prayer is being offered — palms raised toward the heavens.

When you pray, do you raise your palms upward? Do you acknowledge God in that way? Or do you turn your palms toward you, perhaps toward your heart?

This week pay attention to the way you hold your hands in prayer.
