The kingdom of heaven is like unto a treasure hid in the field...St Matthew 13:44

We were driving down the highway to buy groceries yesterday and on the passenger side, I aimed my camera to shoot the field through the window but the car was going too fast for the camera to respond and shot the old tree united with the field instead and I am so glad it did...

It wasn't my intention
To shoot this scene.
Thru' God's intervention
It was meant to be seen..
For a treasure hid in the field,
Of vision has lessons revealed.

My camera switched gears
On our highway drive...
To see a tree tho' old in years,
May be half dead and half alive;
But what is left yet still receives
The strength and will to survive
In its branch that grows the leaves!!!
Poetry by me AJP

    Thank you for the comments ...How true Geoff!...Hope has a lot to do with moving forward in
    life (such as the car did past what I was going to shoot with my camera) to where it focused
    instead on what was more important to see.
