Let the Light Shine Down

Deep in the forests there is constant change.
Old trees will let go of their strong hold on the earth and fall. Those oaks and pines had been around for so many years that it seemed they would stand forever.
When that big tree finally fell it brought new light. It is a sad day for the forest and it will deeply miss the old tree. However the old tree knew that it was part of something grander than itself. For the forest to stay vibrant and alive it had to let go of its' deeply embedded roots so that new life may begin. New life springs to action through a place that was once dark. A new growth occurs that spreads joy and happiness to the forest itself. There are many lessons found deep in nature...
