I took this picture near The Dalles, Oregon. Can you see the oval etched against the skies? It is perfectly face-shaped. This striking oval is an unusual formation to discover in the branches of a tree.
Last August this oak tree was scorched by the flames of a forest fire, yet it lives. There is new growth beneath the painful burning. It is a beautiful reminder of hope in the midst of hardship.This photo brings to mind one of the beautiful Psalms of David.
"He (or she) is like a tree planted by streams of water
That yields its fruit in its season,
And its leaf does not wither."
Have a lovely weekend.
