Be Separate

Driving down my street this morning, I once again noticed a gorgeous tree. It is absolutly captivating. When you see it, you just want to keep looking. It is beautiful, that’s true. Many trees are. It is tall and its branches are widely spread. That’s not unusual. However, this tree is VERY different from all the rest. The street is lined with trees on both sides of the pavement. Years ago, I’m told the county government planted trees all along the sidewalks of our subdivision. Though I don’t know exactly who planted this one, I do know one thing: it stands out from all the rest. Why? It’s blooms are YELLOW. VERY YELLOW. There’s no missing this one. Other trees blend into the scenery as you pass by. Not this one. There are no signs that read, "Big Yellow Tree This Way" or "Giant Yellow Tree Next 50FT." Road signs would not be needed, because the vibrant yellow blooms command your attention.

How different am I? A wife, a mother, a friend, a sister, a teacher….I live a varied existence with many such titles, but am I DIFFERENT? Do people spot me from a distance and immediately realize that I am a Christian? Do they think I am even after taking a closer look? I hope so. It is with the strength of God that I "bloom" at all. Throughout everything that I accomplish in life, I want to blossom into deeply rich colors that glorify Him.

    Beautiful trees! I’ve seen them here and there, what are they?. We might want to find out what type of trees those are. I’d like to know.

    Thanks,
