Let’s kick November off with a #freetolovefriday giveaway, m’kay?!
Have you ever been in a forest & found a mature tree that had an unusual bend in its trunk?
We used to drive past a tree that had two peculiar bends in its trunk. Often we wondered what could’ve caused the trunk’s unusual shape. Welp, one day my husband came up with a tale. He said, “When the Oregon Trail Pioneer’s arrived, they traipsed the woods searchin for their land claims. That old tree was jes a lil saplin & took the brunt end by repeated tramplin of boots & wagon wheels.
The lil saplin could’ve bit the proverbial dust, & ended up as kindling. It must’ve had some strong roots to thrive upward ~ toward the sunlight gainin strength to continue its growth journey. Imagine the battles it went through with its wispy trunk & crunched parts ~ autumn winds, winter storms & heavy spring rains.
Decades later the most identifiable attribute of that old tree would be bundled support, strength & massive thickness wrapped around the bends from its saplin wounds.
Perhaps you can relate with your personal “bends” that’ve occurred in your life ~ injuries, mishaps, trials, illnesses... We’ve an opportunity to stop, recognize & receive encouragement for our hearts~ because we’re not broken in God’s sight. Rather, in our “bends“ there’s been strength created, uniqueness built, ability for greater empathy ~ we’re empowered through God ~ who faithfully gives us exactly what we require precisely & with His perfect timing.
A cousin to this Leather Chick Cuff will be listed in our Shop later today.
