The pecan tree

During the month of July, Arizona experiences very forceful winds called monsoons. It was during these high winds that one of our large pecan trees suffered a major broken branch.

Though the fallen limb was still attached to the main trunk, the branch’s leafy end lay on the ground under the tree. I planned to remove the limb and cut it into firewood. 

A few days after the storm, I carried my chain saw out to the tree. As I stood there analyzing the damage, the thought came so strongly and clearly, “Let it be.” So I walked away.
