ABC Wednesday

ABC Wednesday is a blog posting with a twist. The host (Mrs. Nesbitt) hails from Great Britain... and there are participants from all over the world. Each week, people focus their post on a letter of the alphabet. They started with the letter "A" --and each week you post something in regards to the next letter of the alphabet. It is a fun, imaginative exercise... and it is great to see what everyone comes up with. This week's letter is, "M".

Today... I am posting a pic of the MIGHTY OAK. I have always loved trees, and the oak is a shining example of stature, strength and stability.

"Mighty oaks from little acorns grow" is a phrase often heard (at least when I was in grade school), but today it really brings me comfort. I may be small in this big wide world, but it is still possible to do great things, see great things, and rise out of the dirt.

In Celtic mythos, "The oak is a living legend representing all that is true, wholesome, stable, and noble. When you are in need of stability and strength in your life - envision the oak in your minds eye. Picture yourself drawing into its endless energy waves. Soon, you will find yourself sharing in its power. "
