Isn’t that the Same Tree?

My Father told me a story that I wanted to tell my followers about. I think it relates to life in general and how we approach it.

My Father and my Great Grandfather had a passion for hunting. In the late 30″s early 40’s they would go on their hunting walks almost nightly. One night as they started their hunting walk, fog formed to a point to where they could hardly see three feet in front of them. There were no flashlights then so, with their lantern held high they tried to find their way. Soon they came upon an old Oak tree and sat for a while. Once Great Grandpa Webb thought he had his whit and was confident in their direction back to the house, they took off walking. But after 15 minutes of walking my Father Byron asked, “Grandpa isn’t that the same tree where we started from awhile back?”

Great Grandpa Webb looked at the tree and replied, “Well so it is. It looks like we have been walking one big circle back to the same spot where we started.” They did finally make it back to the house that night.

In life we find ourselves back at the same spot in life that we just left. It may take more than one time sitting under that big Oak Tree to get your bearings. On my Fathers foggy night with his grandfather his passion was to get back home. What is your passions? Where is your Oak Tree?
