Vine, The Vine

It displays its flexibility as it winds itself around the tree,  hugging it tightly: The Vine stretches and spreads itself, giving life to  its branches.  The Vine is the source

That gives you life  
That brings you through periods of loneliness 
That comforts when people  forsake you 
That cheers you on when you have failed
That encourages you when your expected door does not open. 

The Vine is your belief system: it is the inner voice compelling you to keep going, not to give up.

Therefore, whatever dominates your life  resides within you: Whether it is

Love or hate,
Envy or jealousy,
Trust or fear,
Compassion or Kindness, 
Joy or Sincerity,
Gentleness or patience.

To think that the course of your life is  dependent upon your decision about The Vine is awesome.   Either The Vine  will become your

Dictator or your lover, 
Friend or your competitor,
Inner peace or your  inner war. 

The Vine is the never ending source that will walk with you throughout your maturation process: You will  never be alone.

  1. "I am the vine and you are the branches; if a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit. Without me you can do nothing." John 15:5. I love you Pat.

  2. This vine runs through the series with your philosophical writings stamped on every leaf.

  3. The vine can be restricting or lead us astray depending on the nutrients it needs, but regardless it is there for us. You have a glorious, healthy, vibrant vine. I love it!

    You have a delightful posting dear Pat! Thanks!

  4. Love it! Whether it is sleeping during the harsh elemental cold spells or lush and vibrant during the temperate warmth it is there and holding on, like you and your words!

  5. For me the Holy spirit is the vine and I am but the branch--an honored thing to be. A vine has strength and endurance as you mention--just like you.

    love, Micki

  6. The vine can pull us forward through the difficulties and give us something to hold on to when we are struggling.
