Against all Odds

I can't sleep. I took a nap today after church and now I'm WIDE awake. So I thought I'd post this:




I wanted to prove a point. Sort of. First of all, I think this photo is amazing. I took it awhile ago on a hike, when my mother came to visit me. The stump of this tree was obviously ripped off, probably by lightening. But against all odds these two trees grew off the stump and the roots made their way into the ground. I think it's incredible how nature can do that. And well, since I wrote this, I wanted to prove that it can happen in real life.

As you were. As you were...

Nature is an amazing thing, isn't it? How could anyone not see the hand of God around every corner...

AWESOME STUMP! I want to add a little door and make it a home of a small gnome.
