A Photo of Faith


Hanging next to the picture window in the living room was an old picture, painted on glass. Two trees stood alone and forlorn at the edge of a wood.

The view outside the window held hundreds of trees. Some tall, some short. Maples. Oak trees. Walnut trees, and others.

I sat in a chair facing that window one dreary, rainy dayfaith when I was a child. I looked at the picture and then out the window. 


The two trees in the picture. The woods through the window.

Only two trees. Then many.

That was when I noticed the words on the picture. Have faith in God,” it said.


Some dreary, rainy days, I remember that day.

I remember a picture with two lonely trees and the words, Have Faith in God. I remember the picture outside that same window, an entire  woodland of trees.

I remember that Faith produces results. Faith brings power. Faith grows trees – and me.

How about it, friend?  How is your faith?
