Running With Inspiration-two thine ownself be true

Project 5 Already!!
Jamie picked the phrase:To thine ownself be true.

I painted this tree...

with this in mind...

Matthew 13:3-8
"What do you make of this? A farmer planted seed. As he scattered the seed, some of it fell on the road, and birds ate it. Some fell in the gravel; it sprouted quickly but didn't put down roots, so when the sun came up it withered just as quickly. Some fell in the weeds; as it came up, it was strangled by the weeds. Some fell on good earth, and produced a harvest beyond his wildest dreams."

I truly long to be that fruitful tree, rooted in faith, tended to by Jesus, and sharing love and beauty and peace along the way :)
That is me!

p.s. Tomorrows word (the last one) is PRIDE!
