Symphony in the Trees by Michael Rueffert (I wrote this following a day in the woods with my dog. These times in the woods are therapeutic for me. I call them my “woods-fix”. God is the Therapist and He speaks to me through His creation)
It has been said that wind is an example of faith in God. We cannot see it, but we can see and experience the impact, the results, and the evidence of its existence. Creation is evidence of the reality of an intelligent Creator…God. The Symphony in the Trees is evidence of the reality of wind. Though unseen…very real. Each tree, just as the many instruments in a symphony, is a unique size and shape with a specific purpose and expression. Each tree dances in the wind as if responding to a different mechanism, a specific instruction from an invisible conductor. Each trunk, each branch, each needle and leaf twisting and swaying as if listening to its own drumbeat.
Yet, just as with a well-organized symphony, with each instrument playing its own notes, moving its own direction, expressing its individuality, the beauty of that which results is without parallel. Listen…listen.
The evidence points to a divine intelligence; a skilled Conductor.The sound…the beautiful sound. There is no compare.
It is pure harmony…
Thank you Lord…for the Symphony in the Trees.
He makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth;
he sends lightning with the rain
and brings out the wind from his storehouses. Psalm 135:7
