I don’t spend a lot of time outside, which is one of the reasons that I take my walk around the lake during lunch.  I enjoy feeling the sun on my skin, and I rather need the vitamin D.  On hot days like today, however, I am also thankful for the cool of the shade.

Walking under the patches of shade from the trees along the path reminded me a bit of my post on Trees, where I mentioned that trees often need to be pruned to be useful.  I am glad that (through whatever means) God cared for the trees around the lake in order to provide shade on hot days for those that walk beneath them.  I pray that I remember to thank Him for my pruning, and that I might provide His “shade” for others.
