The ups and downs of a persons life while they are on the earth plane.

THE REASON WHY IM HERE.

When I was a young tree, I lived in the country and life was good, the air was clean, spring wake up time, summer full of excitement, autumn slowing down and winter time, time to sleep.

I DID NOT KNOW THAT I'D BEEN PUT THERE BY EXPERTS.

Later in my lifeI took a few hard knocks, like a branch been ripped off but I had to go on living. Then I was transplanted in another part of the country and life really changed. I grew up faster the pace of life was faster, the knocks were harder, but I had to go on living.

I DID NOT KNOW THAT THIS HAD BEEN PLANNED BY EXPERTS.

Life now was bad, I would put it likeI had been cut down not with a saw... clean and quick but chopped at and then left and chopped again, until I fell and then stripped me of all my branches until I was just a big piece of wood. Then I was left to what? I did not know and cared less, but I had to go on living.

I DID NOT KNOW THAT EXPERTS PLANNED THIS.

Then one day I was lifed out of the dark place, but who would want me now a piece of wood hard and dark with nothing to give? But some people took the darkness away and I began to see myself differently. The grain in me was good, people started cutting pieces off, but I didn't get any smaller and I felt better and stronger.

I STILL DID NOT KNOW THAT IT HAD BEEN PLANNED BY EXPERTS.

One day I was picked up and taken to where they were building a house and I was put in a position where I could help to support the house. In this house was a family, I watched them grow and because of my past I shared some of thier secrets, but said nothing. I laughed with them and helped them in my own way and I tried to keep them safe the way life had taught me.

WAS THIS PLANNED BY EXPERTS?

What is going on now? They are drilling holes in me and putting screws in sawing pieces out and knocking nails in. What is happening? They are building an extension, there's more to watch over but I dont mined.

I WAS PUT HERE BY EXPERTS.

The house is a happy one because the family is happy, but at lastthey leave one by one to make their own way in life. Now I'm on my own and time seems to go so slowly. I start to buckle under the weight, my joints are weak, cracks appear and time is starting to tell.

BUT I KNOW I WAS PUT HERE BY EXPERTS.

Disaster, the house is on fire there's no one in and the fire soon gets hold. It's soon over with and I stand not as the strong straight timber supporting others, but now burned and blackened the fire has done a good job. The wind of change blows and now I lay on the ground, nothing else for me to do, but I don't mind.

NOW I KNOW I WAS PUT HERE BY EXPERTS.

No peace for me, there's a man looking and collecting some of the burned timbers. He picks me up and takes me to his place. Again I'm sawn and cut, spun around and when he's finished I've been made into chair legs, table legs and other parts of furniture. This man is gifted for he makes me feel good and now I'm polished up, I look good.

COULD THIS MAN BE AN EXPERT.

Some of the other things I'm part of are, a cradle a play pen that keeps babies safe, parts of a rocking chair. Time passes by quickly and the babies grow up and move on. Other people take their place and time once more starts to tell, my joints are loose and I'm not as strong as I was. Im chopped up and put on the fire again, I don't mind I've lived through this before, but this time it's to keep a family warm.In a flash I recall all the things that has happened in my life and think, is this it? All to go up in smoke. But as I go up in smoke towards the sky nowI know.

I'M THEEXPERT.
