In your unfailing love you will lead the people you have redeemed. In your strength you will guide them to your holy dwelling.

Exodus 15:3 (NIV)

I'm just a regular guy who was
tempted to lose all hope but did not. It was God who made the difference.

They probably are David. birch trees drop an amazing amount of propeller type seeds and a fence line is perfect for growing and surviving. The cattle would eat them anywhere else when they are very young, This is the sight we see when we exit our very rural church in the country side.
No one notices the trees until the frost lights them up each winter. You could probably write several Haiku’s off an image like this.

Trees along the fence line are common here, too. Lots of cattle and farm land, so saplings only survive in sheltered areas.

Elm trees rule in these parts, followed by the western cedar, an evergreen which can become invasive. There are post oak “forests” here and there, but not too many.
