The Mighty Oak

I love all trees but one of my favorites is the oak tree. These strong and beautiful trees are an encouragement to me when I am going through a rough patch in life.  The oak in this picture has been in many severe thunderstorms, a tornado, drought, hail and several ice storms. It has stood strong through it all what a great reminder to me to stand strong in all the storms of life.

Every time I look out at the beautiful oak trees in my yard I think of Tanya Tucker’s song “Strong Enough to Bend” that song has also been an encouragement to me many times.
