Tall and Strong

Day 54

I like to go on the back roads on my drive to work, you never know what you will see, deer, turkeys, cows, horses, all kinds of animals and birds. I am most fascinated by the lone trees that are out in the middle of huge fields. Right out in the middle there will be a huge tree, how did it get there? How did that tiny seed manage to land there and not get cut down? Has it been there since farmers used horses to plow the fields? Did it provide shade for the farmer and his horses during hot summer days? I love to watch the seasons change and imagine what that tree has seen in it's time on earth, I marvel at the randomness of it all, at how that one seed took hold and never let go and grew strong and tall.
