While walking the dog along our favorite trail, I noticed how red the leaves were, almost as if they were on fire. A closer look was in order and hidden behind this colorful firestorm was a treasure trove of golden berries.
I never would have seen them if I didn’t stop for a closer look and thought how true that is with people too. So often we only see the outside and make our judgments based on little information. We all have so much more hidden just a little deeper and share those secrets with those who bother to look. Remember the saying “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover?”
This tree taught me the same concept. You don’t get the full picture with a quick glance. Why not stop and take a deeper look? Who knows what wonderful treasures you’ll find?
