We live surrounded by forest. Tall trees, short trees, old growth, new growth. Each one is truly magnificent. When we sit on our deck, we can hear the leaves falling. We are truly amazed by the different sounds the trees make in a breeze.
With a strong wind puffing thru the mountain, it sounds like the ocean waves. We get the best of both worlds here, the Forest and the Sound of the ocean.
The trees protect the animals that make it their home. There is lots of shade and cool natural air conditioning in the summer. In the winter, the majestic beauties put on their white caps in the snow fall and wear them proudly offering insulation and beauty to the onlookers.
We are blessed to live in such a peaceful, magical love filled environment of Forest.
I believe Forest means...For rest. It is such a comfort to come home from a trip in the city, big or small city, to see the open arms of each tree reach out to us. Inviting us in for rest.
What a comfort trees can be. They consume us with such a healing presence, comforting us always with their hospitable environment. Plant a tree to help their united voices of love spread throughout the universe.
Each leaf is a miracle of new growth, new beginnings, and new life. Hug a tree and thank them.
Thank You, Forest, for inviting us into your home....
