The lesson of the acorn

The lesson of the acorn

This small, simple acorn is how the biggest of oak trees begins.

As I was hiking near the woods looking for spectacular, big oak trees with autumn-colored leaves to photograph, it occurred to me that those spectacular trees started out as small, simple acorns,  just like this one.

This really speaks to me.  In fact, it shouts to me, how this is so parallel to life, hopes, dreams, faith, and anything else good that starts off small, perhaps even seeming insignificant, then grows, strengthens, and ends up as mighty and tall as the biggest, tallest oak tree.
