A woman is a tree of life;
the heavens know her grace.
In her is found an essence that
eclipses time and space.
She reaches heavenward, her fingers
branching toward the sun
and winds her roots through rocks and dirt
to bless the work she’s done…
to feed and anchor tender shoots
by her good seed begun.

Is there anything in nature more beautiful than a woman who plants her roots deeply enough to bring forth strong branches and green leaves? Like a majestic tree, she offers shelter to all who seek her. She loves and is loved, nurtures and is nurtured.

A woman who finds good ground blesses the lives of others and, in so doing, her own.
