How insignificant...

we humans can be when compared with so much of God's creation. Take, for instance, the Redwood tree...

Can you see the gentleman in the middle? How small he is compared even to the trunks of the fallen trees? This made me think of the Joyce Kilmer poem:

 I think that I shall never see
a Poem as lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is 'prest
against the sweet earth's flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,
and lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in summer wear
a nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain,
who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,
but only God can make a tree.
