Planting trees….

shade tree“Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.”  Warren Buffett

My friend shared this quote with me and I smiled….

It brought words of conviction and clarity to me today….

It brought perspective to a venture I am dreaming about…

It reminded me how things don’t grow overnight and often over time, growth can bring very good things…

I sometimes like the idea of planting oak trees as opposed to oak tree seeds….

I feel called and passionate about planting something new….

I feel uncertain about how it will develop…

I will be faithful in planting and watering the seeds and trust in time, I will see if it might produce a place or rest for others….

I am excited, uncertain, passionate, anxious, convicted and grateful….

Are you planting any seeds or are you resting int he shade of trees that were planted by another? Remember to commit yourself to actions today that will make a difference tomorrow!
