The Sugar Maple

IF YOU WERE A TREE, WHAT WOULD YOU BE, AND WHY?

I’d be a Sugar Maple, for it’s range of fall color, for it’s many uses as a beautiful wood , and for it’s sweetening agent from the sap.

Following is a great SPIRITUAL ANALOGY I fully relate to as well:

The Maple Tree

“Life lessons learned through the maple syrup process is that the tree won’t give the sap unless there is a wound or a cut. The sap can only be made into syrup with fire and heat, but in the careful watchful hands of The Master, what comes from a scar can be turned into something wonderful, sweet, and satisfying.”
