SEEING THE FOREST...Fran's Friday Forum...!!!

By

I’m sure most are familiar with the adage: ‘I CAN’T SEE THE FOREST FOR THE TREES’...WELL...

 

According to ‘URBAN DICTIONARY’, this means that if you look at things one at a time, you might not realize that a branch of separate "trees" go together to make a "forest"...FURTHER...

 

‘When you are too close to a situation you need to step back and get a little perspective. When you do you will notice there was a whole forest you couldn't see before because you were too close, and focusing on the trees. Simply that you have focused on the many details and have failed to see the overall view, impression, or key point.’

 

IN THE REAL ‘ADAGE-FREE’ WORLD, perhaps, stepping back for a better perspective may often see you ‘FALLING BACKWARDS OFF A CLIFF’...!!!

 

We’ve all been there, I’m sure...!!!

 

In these beautiful days of AUTUMN IN PENNSYLVANIA, when the colors jump off the canvas of life everywhere you look, you may not notice that that beautiful clump of trees ahead contains some dead trees, some evergreens, some saplings, tall trees, small trees, bare spots, fallen trees, etc...

 

Perhaps what GOD IS TRYING TO SHOW US IS HOW TO TRAIN OURSELVES TO SEE THE BEAUTY IN EVERY 'ONE' AND EVERY 'THING'...We are all part of ‘THE BIG PICTURE’...!!!

 

THE BEAUTY OF GOD IS NOT VERY FAR FROM ANY ONE OF US...!!!

 

SO...IN GOD’S CREATION...HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND...!!!
