Mike took the reference photo when we were walking in our local park. This giant and its nearby friends spread a canopy over much of our path. Mike had to almost hug the tree to get the shot.
Living in the tropics where one can ‘plant’ a stick and it will grow into a tree, still does not prepare you to gaze at a giant like this without a sense of awe.
Our God is Mighty, like this huge trunk and spreading branches. And He is Merciful, like the leafy canopy that provides shade even on the hottest days. Let’s give Him praise from hearts full of wonder.
