So, here’s the deal. Today in VA… We have a Jesus Tree.

I know. Ponder it.

Before I tell you about it, I feel it may be necessary to emphasize that in NO way, shape or form am I in ANY way -expressed or implied- making fun of my God, your God or anybody else’s God. If anything, I am mocking myself, those people that see Jesus on toast, rock formations, dog butts, etc. and possibly Jeff, since he was there too.

Last night, we were out in the field checking on our growing pumpkin plants and guess what??

Yes! We’re going to have a Baby Pumpkin!!
This is super exciting and slightly ahead of schedule andwearesooooexcited!!

So, we’re walking back to the house and Jeff says, “Look at that tree over there, it looks like a guy pointing at something.” He was totally right, so we laughed and I did my best statue impression…
Then… Jeff says, “Wait a minute, that looks like Jesus.” I looked again. He was right. I said, “…and he’s carrying a lamb.” Jeff said, “You’re right.”

See it? The picture is dark, so it’s almost impossible to see on a phone, unless you’re in a dark room. Here’s another one:

I took the liberty of drawing a rough outline in Paint, just in case the picture isn’t giving enough detail. The creepy thing is that if you zoom in on the face, you can ReALLy see a face; I’m pretty sure the eyes were glowing.

See what I mean?
Soooo, we stared at it for a while, not sure what to do. The figure kept getting more and more obvious. We started trudging back to the house and it was clear that He was watching us. It wasn’t funny anymore. I mean, when Jesus is standing in your yard, it’s pretty serious business.
I asked Jeff what we should do about it. He didn’t know. More importantly, what was He pointing at?

Should we follow a mathematical equation and determine the exact angle of His outstretched arm and, at the point where it intersects with the plane of the Earth, start digging for something?

Is it a warning? Could there be an abandoned well in the area and Jesus wanted to get our attention to warn us?

I think it is possible that the answer is much more mundane. See, behind the barn, we have a tree down. You can sorta see it here, to the back left:

It was there when we moved in but, by the time we got around to dealing with it, the weeds had grown up and there were probably bugs and snakes and hobbits living in it, so we decided to wait until this Fall, or maybe even Winter, to deal with it. In the meantime, it’s just laying there.

I’m pretty sure that Jesus is gesturing at the tree. I can almost hear Him… “I work and sacrifice to make a nice place for you people to live and this is the thanks I get?! Leaving trees lying all over the ground?! Do you know how long it took me to make that tree?! Get this mess cleaned up!

Side note: Apparently, it’s not just me. Even Jesus sounds like his mother every now and then.

Anyway, I felt kinda bad about not taking care of the fallen tree, once it occurred to me that this might be The Jesus Tree’s message. Still, I don’t want to die of snake poisoning either, so I’m going to hope that he’s pointing to buried treasure. Fingers crossed!
