Today’s Good Word ~ Grounded

I love my 200 year old live oak. It’s branches extend twenty feet. It’s roots are grounded in soil that is no deeper than 5 inches. Storms and winds cannot shake this tree, it is grounded and gains it strength from roots that stretch far before the shade cast by the tree. When we are grounded, we’re not easily swayed by emotions or spur of the moment impulses. We take time to think, reflect, and weigh our actions. When we are grounded we anchor our roots in a set of values tested by time. We cannot be shaken by the storms that buffet us or the gail winds that try to knock us off balance.
