Marguerite Harmon Bro: For Trees

We thank You for trees, O God. We thank You for the trees of our childhood in whose shade we played and read and dreamed. We thank You for special trees which will always stand large in our memory be cause they became our trees. We thank You for great stretches of trees which make the forests, drawing sustenance from Your bounties of sun and water, earth and air, even as we draw strength from them.

Marguerite Harmon Bro is the author of children’s books, including the novel Sarah, first published in 1949.
