Thankful for the hope of healing and the knowledge that the Lord uses it all for our good…
It leaves me breathless. Sharing it with proper citation – only with your blessing, though!
Good idea, Seedbud. I like it!
I love how your eye sees the world. This is fabulous. Leigh
Heartwood! A wondrous reminder of hurt and healing and carrying on when things get tough. A very enlightening post and poem.
Wow! Beautiful, just beautiful.
This is beautiful, and much appreciated today.
I loved the image. Very good. And also the poem.
An inside look at a tree and insightful words. Very beautiful.
Beautiful pic and observation! 🙂
Reblogged this on sayings with a heavy heart.
I love your words and your picture.
I collect heart rocks and love to find hearts in nature! ❤
among your best
Love this thought–thank you for merging the painful and the blessed.
Excellent photo and words.
You have great insight and depth.
You said it. Like most trees, most of us have many layers of dark rings around our hearts or memories, and in between…lots of luscious pulp. Good one L&T!
Particularly beautiful in its simplicity.
True for many of us! And beautiful.

The word and image are perfect together.
Looks like a map for buried treasure with the annual rings providing the contours
The rings tell stories … good eye!
This is a powerful image when combined with the poem. It makes me think of a loved one who survived cancer but a scar remains.
