A Magnificent Live Oak Tree in Fort Walton Beach, Florida!

A Massive, Graceful, Live Oak in Fort Walton Beach, Florida

This amazing live oak tree anchors a playground in Fort Walton Beach, Florida where we took the kids a couple of weeks ago. Carol took this picture looking up into the tree and the mass and beauty of this living sculpture by God was astonishing! Beneath the tree we all played with the kids on the seemingly tiny playground equipment while this fortress formed a massive umbrella over us. What random paths the limbs seemed to take away from the trunk, with the branches reaching out for light perfectly creating a uniform canopy of shade.

I am reminded of God’s Word in Psalm 91…

God is my shield and my strength
I put my trust in him

He is my protector
His shadow watches over me
I will rest in it

I am covered in God’s wings
My refuge is in his wings

God’s faithfullness is my shield and rampart
They will protect me

The Lord Most High will protect me
He is my dwelling and my refuge

He has commanded his angels to watch over me and guard me
They lift me up in their hands
To keep me safe and guard me from evil

“Because he loves me,” says the Lord,
“I rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
He will call upon me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”
