Then shall all the trees of the forest sing for joy before the Lord.
Psalm 96:12-13 NRSV
I drew this picture for the foreign exchange student from Spain who spent a year in our home.
She always liked the rhododendrons and our woods, so I started to draw them for her.
As more people saw it though, I could tell it was something different to each one. Some saw
the forest; some saw it as a flower picture. Still others saw it as a path into or out of the woods.
Visitors to the redwoods see it as a reminder of a beautiful place they visited.
For our family it's a picture of the driveway from our house to the road. What started out as a
picture for Yolanda, ended up being something for everyone. I hope she sees it for what it was intended
to be - an expression of love and friendship to a special person on the other side of the world.
