rebirth

Carpe Diem #1121 Growth

rebirth
from the seed
comes the mighty oak
one growth ring
at a time........

One pastor we had described his "conversion" to a Christian by comparison to a roller shade.  It was sudden and complete like a roller shade one pulls on and instantly rolls all the way up!  He acknowledged that not all Christians had this same experience.  For most it was a slow journey as one moves along the path of life.  Beliefs and/or non beliefs for most of humanity seem to me to be mostly the latter.  Ever evolving.

  1. This is something we should all remember - growth - one ring at a time. We always want to rush things. Well done.
