Has the tree surgeon finally overdone it?
This tree has lost its limbs and in the process, has been shorn of all its former leafy glory.
But like our spirit which is sometimes humiliated and painfully pruned by trials and challenges, there is always hope for a future glory that outshines the present.
Just so long as we stay rooted to life…
“Was it not necessary that the Messiah should suffer these things and enter into his glory?”
~ Luke 24:26
“To suffer, not to die.”
~ St Magdalene de Pazzi
