The oak tree has been in the yard for 5 years. It is in the center of the front lawn and it has often made me smile. In both spring and fall, it is highlighted by the sun and I could have taken hundreds of photos of it since it was planted there.
This evening, as if it were under a flood light on center stage, the actress glowed as she performed her best role - that of an oak tree. And what better actress to play the part?
I think it would be simply grand if everyone could know and be comfortable with who they really are and be that person. It doesn't work for an oak tree to try to be a bird, or a flower, or even another kind of tree! It is at its best when it is an oak tree through and through. (I know this sounds silly, but I think you understand what I'm saying)
I can't be someone else and someone else can't be me. You are best when you are who you were made to be. You have gifts to offer the world that only you can give. And just like the oak tree that delighted me this evening, when each of us is doing exactly what we were created to do, we delight, help, encourage those around us.
So, cheers! I hope you enjoy the evening wherever you are!
