Once upon a time, three tall trees were close friends and they had dreams. 🌲 🌲 🌲
One hoped to become a treasure chest 📦 for kings; another wanted to be a great ship 🛳 that would ferry rich travellers. The third tree wished to provide shade for travellers who will look up to admire it. 🌳
The first tree was cut down and made into a box, used in a manger to feed animals, but strangely, a baby was placed in it one night.
The second tree was made into a tiny boat. One night, 13 travellers boarded it and a storm buffeted it. Strangely, one of the men commanded the storm to cease and the waves obeyed Him!
The third tree was cut down to be used for execution, and an innocent man was nailed to it. However, after that execution, the world never remained the same, because whenever people remember that night, they look up to heaven to give thanks. 🙏🏽
