The apple tree, planted with care in the huge, lush orchard, grows tall as the warm sun and good rain falls upon it. Year after year, it bears apples for all of the people to come and eat of its sweet, juicy fruit. It feeds the people and the people come to sit under the tall apple tree. The people make apple pie and warm cobbler in the cast iron pots and it is shared by all who sit under the tall apple tree. The people hold grand festivals as the harvest starts and enjoy playing under the great shade of the tree. The one who finds, at the center of the apple, the apple seed, takes it and plants it. The apple seed, planted in good soil, will grow tall and bear more sweet apples for more people to enjoy. Baskets and baskets of apples. And the people cut the apples into slices to share with those around them. Eating of the apple brings joy and fulfillment to all. As a gift, the seed is taken home where it can be planted and grow into a tall apple tree. Patiently waiting for the right time to harvest the apples can seem like eternity, but the people know that it is the faith and promise that will make the wait just as wonderful as the harvest. Then, in the warm sun and the crisp air, the people eat the sweet apple presented by the tall apple tree. It’s life, for all people, everywhere.
