Morning Inspiration 10.27.11

Oak Tree and Large Stone
To find what you seek in the road of life,
the best proverb of all is that which says:
"Leave no stone unturned."
Edward Bulwer Lytton

  • What does this quote resonate in you?
  • Are you searching for that one thing that fulfills you?
  • Have you searched high and low and still can’t seem to place your hands on it?

Consider the above quote ~ Now ask yourself
  “What stone have I bypassed because it wasn’t large enough?”

As you travel your life’s journey looking under, over and around every large stone for that chance of a dream fulfilled, stop to look under the small stones too.  There you may unearth the seed of your dreams just waiting for you to uncover, plant and nourish it to grow as a mighty oak tree.

The Oak Tree
by Johnny Ray Ryder Jr.

A mighty wind blew night and day.
It stole the Oak Tree's leaves away.
Then snapped its boughs
and pulled its bark
until the Oak was tired and stark.

But still the Oak Tree held its ground
while other trees fell all around.
The weary wind gave up and spoke,
"How can you still be standing Oak?"

The Oak Tree said, I know that you
can break each branch of mine in two,
carry every leaf away,
shake my limbs and make me sway.

But I have roots stretched in the earth,
growing stronger since my birth.
You'll never touch them, for you see
they are the deepest part of me.

Until today, I wasn't sure
of just how much I could endure.
But now I've found with thanks to you,
I'm stronger than I ever knew.
