swamp walk

I was in the woods on a snowshoe hike behind my house when I came upon three huge Cedars that recently fell over. They had spent scores of years thriving in the swamp .. and then their short little roots simply gave it up in a big wind. just those three .. no others that I could see in any direction.
They took a few little innocent bystanders over with them.. or almost.They are bent and compromised and will slowly meet the earth over some odd years.

Not sure why I record this.. other than they spoke to me of their grace and peace in this most likely abrupt change.

Peace be with you this evening as the arctic winds blow in. May you know that the change you seek or seek to avoid can provide a grace you could not see coming.
