THOUGHTS Encouragement gift tree

When you are scared or feeling down, you are looking to the ground... and you will see; soon the miracle of a new life starts to grow from the ground with fragile green leaves. Time changes the fragile new life into a strong tree. You feel strong again and you can confidently lift your face up. You will see the golden sun beams twinkling warmly through the leaves of the tree.

The Encouragement tree shows, with its growth, that life is strong and beautiful.
