Winter Trees

Have you ever noticed how beautiful the trees are in the winter?  Without any leaves, they display their mind-blowing array of branches.  The solid, sturdy branches define the structure, but alone they would be empty and bleak.  Instead, they’re wondrously balanced  with smaller and smaller branches leading to the tiniest delicate twigs that make the tree inviting rather than intimidating.

Imagine if we were willing to be similarly transparant, displaying our strength and our softness in equal measure, balanced and able to bring beauty even in the starkness of winter.
