The Story of the Tree Man....

In the course of running this website, God has blessed me in so many ways. Among other things, He has encouraged me, helped me grow, and last but certainly not least... He has unmistakably used this site to help so many of us CONNECT!

One of my favorite things in this regard has been learning of the spark of love that started on these very pages that lead to a wedding.

1 Peter 2:9

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

Philippians 3:20-21

But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.
