One of the beauties of driving through Florida is seeing the sprawling oak trees in pastures and fields.
Something that I observed while I was a teenager is that trees that spread their limbs wide, are seldom blown over by strong winds. On the other hand, trees like the poplar and Bradford pear that hold their limbs close and stretch them high, grow tall but are easily snapped by wind.
The same is true of people. Those who spread their arms to bless others are generally stronger than those who use all their efforts for selfish ambition and gain.
I saw the oak tree pictured above, along US 173 in the panhandle of Florida. I saw it and drove past it, but could not resist, so I found a place to make a U-turn and went back to make a photograph of it.
