Creation’s Sentries

 …like trees planted along the riverbank

–Psalm 1:3

The trees remind us

of beginnings —

roots that search,

limbs that reach,

the strength of standing

on firm ground,

the grace of covering,

the rings of time

that echo out

like ripples across 

a glassy lake

teaching us

the cycles of life

that began

when God spoke

all creation into being.

Let us lean into 

the implanted Word,

be like the trees

that never wither

but flourish, take root,

and give good fruit

in every season.
