"...I shall never see a poem lovely as a tree."

Our annual Thanksgiving vacation was filled with beauty. Big B and I enjoyed creating gratitude devotionals, reminiscent of my summer camp days, from things we'd find on our morning nature walks. We realized that almost all of the objects we found paid homage to the life cycle of trees. As we enter the Advent today, when many families celebrate the tree all month long, we give thanks for the arboreal beauty we witnessed this autumn.

"Though a tree grows so high, the falling leaves return to the root."
(Malay proverb)
