The Earth is the Lord’s and its fullness thereof. We are only partakers of the splendour that mother Earth offers us.
When I look at this date palm tree with its budding baby dates waiting to ripen, to be plucked and eaten, it makes me think of The Earth.
It makes me think of beautiful giving Mother Earth, mother to all of us, full of her resources that we latch onto and enjoy like sucklings.
Sometimes we tap and suckle with amazing selfishness and greed to take and take from her, yet, she keeps giving from her fullness season after season.
