As the tree spreads it’s branches and reaches forth it’s leaves to absorb the radiance of the sun
May I also reach for you, oh God, and absorb the beauty of Your love.
And as the tree reaches out it’s roots deep into the earth for the nourishment to grow and live,
May I as well reach for and receive the strength and sustenance You so richly provide.
And as the tree in turn provides beauty, shelter and shade for many living creatures
May I also be a source of blessing and comfort to all those around me.
