People are 'treasures', families are 'our Treasures' of all Treasures.........
Since 'people' are certainly more impt. than 'things', this is a reason we can joyfully share photos of our family that GOD has given us. But as we know, it is 'not' impt. what the outside of the pkg. looks like, it is most impt. what is on the inside of the pkg., cause God's Word says 'what is on the inside is what will show on the outside'.........I Peter 3:3-4 outward & inward adornment. He also asks us to 'cleanse' the inside, so the 'outside' will be 'clean' also. Luke 11:39 and Matt.23:26
When we become a part of God's Family, making us HIS CHILD, we want to allow GOD to shine thru our lives to touch the lives of others for HIM. Psalm 139, GOD created us, there is 'no' hiding from HIM.
Trees represent families with all our members. There is the main trunk, then there are the limbs and the leaves......hopefully we will not 'leave' our families when things are not as we would like them to be, instead we will 'choose' to nurture & love what belongs to our family tree. Showing God's love, will eventually make all the difference. God's kind of 'love' never gives up, it perseveres. Perseverence is a wonderful quality....it helps us 'achieve' what looks impossible. But if we 'believe' God's Word, nothing is impossible with GOD, if it is His Will to be accomplished. Luke 1:37 For with God, nothing will be impossible. In that ch., Christ's birth is announced to Mary, a humble peasant girl, who will nuture in her body the Son of God, the HOLY ONE, that will be born to 'redeem our Souls'....... Even in 'old age', Mary's cousin & mentor was 'blessed with a child' by the LORD GOD. Mary went to visit her cousin Elizabeth, who was in her 6th month of pregnancy, after 3 months of being with Elizabeth, Mary left to go to her own home. Elizabeth was a wonderful mentor to Mary as GOD asks 'older women' to mentor the younger women 'in the things of the Lord'. Titus 2:3-5
Hebrews 11:6 says 'it is impossible' to please GOD without FAITH in HIM'. HEBREWS chap. 11 is the 'Faith' chapter.
This beautiful tree is growing on the grounds of LongWood Gardens in PA.
