Roots of Kindness

A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions,
and the roots spring up and make new trees.
The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves.

I like to look at a tree and think about my life. Like me, the tree has lots of diversions from it's true path. This good ones grow strong and the bad ones die off or never really mature. But always, like the tree, we keep reaching upwards toward the sun (Son).

Gosh Kerri, you sure captured this well...definitely gives you the sense of its size. Terrific framing!

Where is that tree? Is it around Blacksburg? I was wondering since I am working with some naturalists about doing a cool tree workshop for kids in Blacksburg this summer. Nice photo.

I would love to climb that tree! Awesome! Although, I'd probably never get back down. :)

Richard said it well.

Very nice shot Kerri. Is the sun setting in the background, behind the hill? A tree which holds many stories of the past.
