Falling and Standing Still (in Autumn)

Leaf Peeping or Heart Peeping?

amazing tree(s)

trunk stands still…the leaves fall

And the wind blows wherever it wants when it wants…

Picking up the leaves and rustling them to and fro

Simultaneous motion…

Deep roots & water source

Modern-day miracle, eh?

From the standpoint of

a little girl (aka me)

LONG LIVE TREES…

The xylem is composed of dead, thick cells that act as pipes for transporting water and nutrients up the tree.  The active portion of the xylem is known as the sapwood.  The sapwood is found near the outside of the tree.  Older xylem is known as heartwood and is found in the middle of the trunk.  The heartwood is often darker in color and is not very active in transport.  The darker color is caused by resins, oils and minerals, which are deposited as the tree grows.  The xylem (sapwood and heartwood) makes up the majority of a tree trunk.

On close inspection of a tree trunk one can see individual xylem cells.  They are arranged longitudinally.  The shape of xylem cells is what gives wood its unique characteristics.  Pine trees and other conifers have long, narrow xylem cells called tracheids.  This shape provides a surface that gives strength to paper products.  This is one reason why pine fiber is so valuable to the forest products industry.

At some time during your life you must have seen annual (growth) rings, and you know that each growth ring represents a year.  What makes these rings?  An annual ring is one year’s worth of xylem growth.  In most trees the xylem cells formed in the spring are larger than those formed later in the summer.  The difference in size results in what appears as a ring.  In some species such as oak and ash the spring xylem is so wide you can actually see them with the naked eye resulting in a very clear ring.

Yep!;) this/my post(s)… sappy, but may be? full of heart?!-lol😉 with a ring of Truth.

Peace to You Reader:)

The END of Framework (Part 1)

Today is Tuesday, September ooopps…duh, sorry, am sleepy/slightly stressed;  mean, O-c-t-o-b-e-r 3, 2017. 🙂

October 5, 6, and 7th…have special significance to me (as fellow-fragile-life, as a woman and as a Bible student, etc. insert whatever description that specifies me, joanie w, aka boney, freckled-face learner.)

I have special events coming up. So, my priorities have shifted.

We all do that… have priorities at certain times and then we jumble, juggle, shift them/things around accordingly.

What I want/hope to accomplish at the beginning of the week or day is definitely different by the end of the week or day, eh??

{(My priorities as a teen or in my twenties/thirties have changed approaching 50. Though, spiritual things/my spirituality–must admit– has always been a Top priority for me since childhood. Go figure? Yep, i am a weirdo-lol;) and hopefully, a compassionate/lovable/likable one…contributing something useful to the planet and fellow-fragile-life.}

When a particular dead-line is fast approaching sometimes we kick it, kick into HIGHER gear to get whatever done/finished in time…before it gets too late. Most of us like to have things to look forward to which serve as an intermediary incentive/reward/i.e. piece of  YUMMY chocolate… persuading/pressuring our time usage.  After writing this blog, I will want to get some late breakfast or early lunch, huh?

When the end of the day is fast approaching what do You do??
When the end of the work-week is approaching what do You do??

When the end…(insert whatever here) is approaching what do You do??
Depends, huh?? On what is ending… is it a serious something?! Or a silly something?!;)

When the end of your fleeting youth or the end of your entire life…

When the end…. of the world… is approaching what do You do??…” End of the World” ??? “Kosmos”

Stay Calm & (Check it out please)… (then act with accurate knowledge as your prod.)

To know when the end of the world will happen, it is necessary to understand how the Bible uses the term “world.” The Greek word koʹsmos, usually translated “world,” most often refers to the world of humankind, especially the part that is out of harmony with God and his will. (John 15:18, 19 “If the world hates you, you know that it has hated me before it hated you. 19 If you were part of the world, the world would be fond of what is its own. Now because you are no part of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, for this reason the world hates you.” ; 2 Peter 2:5 “And he did not refrain from punishing an ancient world, but kept Noah, a preacher of righteousness, safe with seven others when he brought a flood upon a world of ungodly people.”) At times, koʹsmos refers to the framework of human society.—1 Corinthians 7:31 “and those making use of the world as those not using it to the full; for the scene of this world is changing.” ; 1 John 2:15, 16 15 “Do not love either the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him; 16 because everything in the world—the desire of the flesh and the desire of the eyes and the showy display of one’s means of life*(bragging about one’s possessions)—does not originate with the Father, but originates with the world.”

The phrase “the end of the world,” which appears in many Bible translations, can also be rendered as “the conclusion of the system of things,” or “the close of the age.” (Matthew 24:3; English Standard Version) It refers, not to the destruction of the earth or of all humanity, but to the end of the framework of human society.—1 John 2:17. [excerpted reading article: When Will The World End? (my colored highlights)]

All of us-fellow-fragile-life are directly or indirectly affected by the framework of human society.

What will the end of this framework (of human society) mean for me??
