I'd miss the sound of the wind rustling the leaves. So calming, so tranquil ...
This picture was taken one time when we were driving through a forest in a national park. When we entered the forest, it was like entering in to a climate that was ten degrees cooler. The glare of the sun went away. It seemed quieter. You felt peace.
We can be like trees. I love Psalm 1:3 that says,
"And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams of water, ready to bring forth its fruit in its season; its leaf also shall not fade or wither; and everything he does shall prosper [and come to maturity].Three awesome points are in this verse: in the right season (timing) you'll be fruitful, you won't wither away [dry-up] and you will prosper in everything you do. What's the catch? [See verse 2 of Psalm 1]. IF you delight in God's law and meditate on it day and night you can be like that fruitful tree.
I don't know about you, but I definitely want to be fruitful.God invented a world of wonders for us to enjoy. Physical trees are some of His best handiwork, and so are spiritual "trees."
