Trees

 

Trees are only as strong as the forest that surrounds them; Peter Wohlleben from The Hidden Life of Trees: What they Feel, How they Communicate.

We can learn so much from trees and how they care and support the sick tree. I have been doing a mental health study, and I understand more and more about so many that are created for an intentional ministry by living out the ministry song God has woven into their design.

This picture, from Arthur Rackham's Rare and Revolutionary 1917 Illustrations for the Brothers Grimm Fairy Tales, speaks volumes. We must be a healthy "tree," full of faith and understanding to see the beauty and worth in those who have a brain illness. If we never take the time to understand, it's just a game, and the sacred trust will never come.
