Frivolous Fridays

We planted a tree in our backyard this week. My three year old was very excited. She kept asking if we could go check on it to see if it had grown. I explained to her that trees grow very slowly in fact, that if you sat and watched it you would not see the growth. She gave me a funny look.

 I think people are a lot like trees. We are growing but it is a slow growth. We look at ourselves from day to day and get frustrated when we don't see the amount of growth we think we should see.

Really though, we all know that for a tree to be strong and healthy it needs time. Time in the sun and rain. It's needs slow, steady growth...

kind of like us...

Happy Friday Friends!
