I’m Mudcat. I have posted in the apologetics forum some but not here yet. I am an evangelical, at present, who is exploring Catholicism. I wanted to pose something to those who traverse this board and see what sort of reaction it recieved.
A few years back, in a thunderstorm, a lighting bolt blasted the top two thirds of a beautiful oak we have on the edge of our property. For the last two years, it hasn’t given leaf to its remaining branches. I thought it was dead. It is situated at the rear of our land and I hadn’t paid that much attention to it this year. But today I noticed that it had given leaf to all its remaining branches. Though it was stumpy and ugly…it looked strong and healthy.
Is there a lesson to be learned, in the old blasted oak?
If so, what do you think it is?
