It's been 11 years since I started the Good Tree Farm project. Wow! Eleven years. Seems like a lifetime ago, but it also feels like the blink of an eye in some ways.
Such is the parable with life in general. Most of us get to do so much, yet it can all seem to have wizzed by at the same time. It reminds me of one of the wisdoms Prophet Mohammad pbuh taught, the one about taking advantage of five before another five arrive: 1) your youth before your old age, your health before your illness and frailty, your wealth before your poverty, your free time before your business, and your life before your death.
I'm so grateful that God rewards us for our hard work, regardless if the material success we aimed for has been realized yet or not, provided our intention was good and pleasing to God Almighty.
It certainly has been a journey with struggles and hardships. But, patience and perseverance are winning the day and God's beginning to bring us the allies we strove to have to achieve the objectives of this project.
In future posts, God willing, I shall be expounding on the objectives of The God Tree Project. So stay tuned and God bless!
