I appreciate your comebacks from recent Prayer Letters. Thank you.
In this, my “Bible Slot” as it has become known, I want to share something of which I have only been aware of in the last two weeks.
We are in a “Mast Year”. Well, I know we have been in 2020 and all that that has brought to us, but this recent knowledge has kind of blown my mind. Apologies to you if you know all about this
Apparently one year in about 10 to 15 years; is called a “Mast Year”. All the trees, especially Oak Trees, produce the largest amount of acorns imaginable. Well above any other year. This just does not happen in Surrey/Sussex/London, it is everywhere in the UK. Amazing to me that they all do it at the same time.
This results in a large amount of food for wildlife and the potential for growth of new trees next year. I do not have the space to explain as I wish, please look this up for yourself.
In this year of untold happenings, this information has spoken to me of a Creator God. No matter what is going on around us in this Pandemic, to me God is showing us in this “Natural” happening; He is still here and is our God at this time.
“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
And whose hope is the Lord.
For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters,
Which spreads out its roots by the river,
And will not fear when heat comes;
But its leaf will be green,
And will not be anxious in the year of drought,
Nor will cease from yielding fruit”. Jeremiah 17. 7.8.
May you know His Blessings as you continue to Trust and Hope in Your Lord.
