I thank you, God, for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes. e.e. cummings

We plant a tree and have faith it will grow for decades to come. When we see trees on our walks and Sunday drives, we can offer a prayer of thanksgiving for the anonymous person who years ago planted it for the mothers, fathers, and children he would never meet.

If we can take ourselves out of the equation and make decisions based only on what’s beneficial for future generations, we are in God’s will. At a conscious level, we frequently are not aware of how far out our ripples extend.

Prayer and meditation improves our conscious contact with God who then directs us to plant trees. Otherwise, we bumble through life, benefitting from others’ hard work but not contributing to the comfort and security of our children.
