Reaching Upwards

Our Words for the Week come from Dick Innes.

Like the trees of the forest,
may you find nourishment
in rain as well as sunshine,
Bend with the winds of misfortune
without breaking;
Give of yourself to others
to provide shade from the blistering heat,
Grow old gracefully and not
become rigid or unbending;
and above all
May you keep reaching ever upwards
towards heaven and to God.
