WHISNews21 Brings You Easter From Our Readers
A Special Easter story from Rhon Scheuerman,
Happy to send this to my friends:found this on Misty’s website. firstname.lastname@example.org Bob and I have many pine trees on ouracreage, so checked out our trees and this is so true, … Rhon
Last April on a Sunday, we took one of our “nowhere” drives. My husband was quietly driving a back road and I was occupied in the front passenger seat watching the scenery.
I noticed out of the corner of my eye that my husband was straining to look out my window. This startled me, since his eyes should be on the road in front of him. I asked him what he was looking at out the windows, and he quietly replied, “Nothing.” His eyes went back to the road in front of him.
After a few minutes, I looked over at my husband and noticed a tear running down his cheek. I asked him what was wrong. This time he told me, “I was just thinking about Pop and a story he had once told me.” Of course, because it had to do with his Pop, I wanted to know the story, so I asked him to share it with me.
He said, “When I was about 8 years old, Pop and I were out fishing and that’s when he told me that the Pine trees know when it is Easter.”
I had no idea what he meant by that, so I pressed him for more information.
He continued on… “The Pine trees start their new growth in the weeks before Easter… If you look at the tops of the Pine trees two weeks before, you will see the yellow shoots. As the days get closer to Easter Sunday, the tallest shoot will branch off and form a cross. By the time Easter Sunday comes around, you will see that most of the Pine trees will have small yellow crosses on all of the tallest shoots.”
I turned to look out the window and I couldn’t believe my eyes. It was a week before Easter, and you could see all of the trees with the tall yellow shoots stretching to Heaven.
The tallest ones shone in the sunlight like rows of tiny golden crosses.
Philippians 4:19 (KJV)
But my God shall supply all your need
according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
John 14:27 (KJV)
Peace I leave with you,
my peace I give unto you:
not as the world giveth, give I unto you.
Let not your heart be troubled,
neither let it be afraid.
