I am Sycamine, I warn of a bitter spirit

and call for forgiveness.

I am Acacia, shade in the desert. 

I am strong with a humble call to serve the Lord in hidden places.

I am Apple. I am a symbol of love and intimacy. I whisper, "Come close and look into my eyes."

Step Into 

the Adventure

I am mighty Oak, beautiful

and strong, boasting of God's provision and providence.

I am Lebanon Cedar.

My roots go deep,

and have a chemical

on the tips of them so

they can drill through


I am Palm. I can

bend in the wind because I have a living center. 

I am Ash. I am dying. I warn, "Guard your heart with all diligence."

I am Broom, I call to the weary, "Come and find rest." 

I am gentle Almond. I am a watcher, and I sing, "Wake-up! The Lord is at hand."
