b~r~o~k~e~n cisterns v. SOURCE OF LIVING WATER

It is illogical (and would be debilitating, damaging, and ultimately, death-dealing (physically & spiritually))

to exchange/replace




“b-r-o-k-e-n cisterns”!

b.c. = “military alliances, human philosophies, human theories/opinions, worldly politics”

*S.O.L.W. “True God of Compassion Yahweh/Jehovah”

“water is the solvent”

The only viable… living (drinkable/workable) “solution” (aka help/wisdom to be found) for/(to) any challenge of life… look(ing) to the Creator🙂

chainsaw tree torture

Please leave the trees alone
Realize this
Is probably
Job to

I don’t
Care for the sound of chainsaw, UGH!!!!!!

Or the killing of trees much.

It’s torturous for me, really. (And the post is me trying to cope)… the (city? County?) workers… may be almost done now hopefully!!… for whatever reason… for months our neighborhoods had piles of tree graveyards till they could get around to cleaning up Hurricane Irma aftermath. They were doing their best to clean things up–a lot of work!

Finally… most of the branches, twigs, etc…dead wood was gone… and now, the workers are out and about cutting down new growth for the sake of what? Electrical wires… no idea?… it looks like they are trimming stuff in our neighborhood… it doesn’t take long for the jungle to grow here in Florida… but still…

My front lawn is a mess again… with branches, etc.

I will take the perspective of this is preventative measures… for any future storms or for safety electrical issues or fire issues or for other reasons…I am unaware of…


Hearing the chainsaw sound…is


for me. (it’s like an amped up–dentist tooth drilling (sound) without anesthesia!! YIKES.)

I respect the workers, they gotta do their job, they gotta live, eat, care for families, etc….

Curious how: one person’s dirty job is another’s cleaning up the neighborhood job?!…

Thank You God!!

My job for now



Cutting down trees.

Long Live Trees & People


Long live people like Trees:)

Isaiah 65:22: They will not build for someone else to inhabit,

Nor will they plant for others to eat.

For the days of my people will be like the days of a tree,

And the work of their hands my chosen ones will enjoy to the full.

Yay! It’s quiet now.

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)


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. [excerpted reading: How a Tree Grows: A Tree and its Trunk.]

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

Peace to You Reader:)

The cedars sometimes reach a height of 37 m (120 ft) and the trunk may have a circumference of up to 12 m (40 ft). The long, spreading branches, stretching out horizontally from the trunk, may give a total circumference of as much as 60 to 90 m (200 to 300 ft). The trees are somewhat pyramid-shaped when young but tend to flatten out on top as they mature. The foliage grows in distinct horizontal tiers or layers (instead of interlacing), the boughs bearing round flowerlike sprays of bright-green needles about 1.3 cm (0.5 in.) in length, and tan-colored cones that exude a fragrant resin. The bark is reddish brown in color and quite rough. The trunk becomes gnarled with age.

The wood of the cedar has a warm red tone, is free from knots, and was valued highly for building purposes because of its beauty, fragrance, durability, and resistance to attack by insects. (Ca 1:17; 4:11)

Figurative Use. In the Scriptures the majestic cedar is used figuratively to represent stateliness, loftiness, and strength, either real or apparent. (Eze 31:2-14; Am 2:9; Zec 11:1, 2) Thus, King Jehoash of Israel intended his reply to King Amaziah of Judah to be a withering insult when he compared Amaziah’s kingdom to a “thorny weed” while likening his own kingdom to a mighty cedar of Lebanon. (2Ki 14:9; compare Jg 9:15, 20.) The cedar figures dramatically in Ezekiel’s riddle (chap 17), wherein the king and princes of Judah are likened to the treetop of a cedar of Lebanon carried off to Babylon. (Eze 17:1-4, 12, 13) Thereafter the Messiah is prophetically pictured as a twig from the very top of the cedar, which Jehovah then plants on a lofty mountain.—Eze 17:22-24; compare Isa 11:1; Jer 23:5; 33:15; Ps 2:6; Re 14:1; Da 4:17. [excerpted Insight on Scriptures, Cedar, Vol.1]

figuratively speaking…

am i cedar-like? strong, durable & resistant to attack?!…(by pests, etc in various form!)
