A young man was walking with his grandfather in the forest. His grandson looking at the beautiful trees. He then noticed that lying not far away was old decaying trees. He looked at his grandfather saying, how sad that these beautiful trees must die.
His grandfather said to him, look closer grandson and you will see the tiny seedlings beginning to sprout, the miracle of life renewing itself once again. This is the circle of all things, the birth and death of all creation.
One day you and I will join these beautiful trees, as one day we will join all we love in heavens light.
The grandson looked him in the eye saying, then we don't die grandpa.
His grandfather laughed and said no we don't, we simply change from tree to seedling, renewing God's grace and love.
