Not Everyone Sees It

A  L  O  H  A !
Consider a tree for a moment. 
As beautiful as trees are to look at, 
we don't see what goes on underground - 
as they grow roots. Trees must develop deep roots 
in order to grow strong and produce their beauty. 
But we don't see the roots. 
We just see and enjoy the beauty. 
In much the same way, what goes on 
inside of us is like the roots of a tree.
                       Joyce Meyer

Everything has beauty, 
but not everyone sees it.  

That's what I was thinking,
before I took this shot

The only thing that ultimately matters
is to eat an ice-cream cone, 
play a slide trombone, plant a small tree, 
good God, now you're free. 
                   Ray Manzarek

The sparrow that is twittering 
on the edge of my balcony is 
calling up to me this moment a world 
of memories that reach over half my lifetime, 
and a world of hope that stretches farther 
than any flight of sparrows. 
                      Donald G. Mitchell
