I want to share with you a story that has an inspiring message entitled “Do You Have a Tree Like This in Your Front Yard?”
A carpenter had a rough day on the job. He had a flat tire that made him lose an hour of work, his electric saw quit on him in the middle of the job, and then his pickup truck wouldn’t start.
So, a friend drove the carpenter home; and on the way he sat in stony silence. When they arrived, the carpenter invited the friend to come in and to meet his family and have a drink. As they walked towards the front door, the carpenter paused for a moment in front of a small tree, touching the tips of its branches with both hands. The friend had never seen anyone do that before, and he wondered what it meant.
When the carpenter got to the door, he underwent an incredible transformation. His face was suddenly bright with smiles as he hugged his kids and gave his wife a kiss.
