Their Sacrifice, Our Gain

Today morning, When i was admiring the beauty of nature in terrace, i saw trees,  beautiful, so beautiful…

I like trees around, because they make life more pleasant. Most of us respond to the presence of trees beyond simply observing their beauty. I feel serene, peaceful, restful, and tranquil in a grove of trees…

There are many lessons that we can learn from trees!! They Inspire me in million ways..

We gain lots of things by the sacrifice of the trees like wood, paper, medicine, so and so(There is endless list)… They never expect anything in return.. Likewise we should learn to sacrifice. It has its own rewards.. Everyday little sacrifice would make life wonderful and meaningful … It paves the way for success in healthy relationship. 

Sweat plus sacrifice equals success.

            -Charles O. Finley

Part of the happiness of life consists not in fighting battles, but in avoiding them. A masterly retreat is in itself a victory.

          -Norman Vincent Peale

Self-sacrifice is the real miracle out of which all the reported miracles grow.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Sacrificing your happiness for the happiness of the one you love, is by far, the truest type of love.

Thanks to WordPress, Blogspot and other blogging websites.. They help readers to express their feelings on their blog rather than paper 😀 Perhaps trees are saved 😉 I know it sounds funny&crazy.. 😀

  1. This is something i try to teach my children. I tell them that the only way they’ll get what they want out of life to to give up part of themselves in the process.

    Sacrifice is the brick and mortar that a good person’s character is built with.

  2. Absolutely. Trees are like those loved ones that we never tell how much they mean to us until it’s too late. We just don’t notice until it’s gone. Thanks for the reminder.
    Peace & grace,

  3. very true khushbu
    trees bring us serenity, peace if mind, tranquility, and also remind us of God creative creations – the endless varieties, how they change through the season, the colours etc etc

    and the cocept of saving trees is not funny or crazy. It is noble.
    We definitely need them trees to stand on our ground.

    You should get to know this amazing Kenyan environmentalist if you haven’t heard of her yet: Wangari Maathai (http://www.greenbeltmovement.org/w.php?id=59), she is a nobel prize winner for peace. 🙂 You should read her autobiography: Unbowed! 🙂 Very inspiring, and she touches up on what you have discussed here! 🙂

    “In a few decades, the relationship between the environment, resources and conflict may seem almost as obvious as the connection we see today between human rights, democracy and peace.” — Wangari Maathai

  5. My husband recently did a series of paintings called Hidden Trees. It was a collaboration between my photography & his painting, we both love trees. He wanted people to catch a glimpse of what we often miss when we rush by in our busy lives. The show was a great success and he got media coverage that was really good too. I think a lot of people love trees more than they speak about it. Thanks for sharing these thoughts.

    1. I am glad that you and your husband Like tress 🙂 I would love to see your word (Photography and paintings) Please share it in your wordpress post 🙂 Thanks for your comment 😉

  6. Hi,
    Very nicely written. Here where I live it can get very hot in summer, and without these beautiful trees to give us their wonderful shade we would be lost.

    1. Yeah, That’s true 🙂 Trees gives shade,fruits,medicine etc when they are alive and many thing when they die… 🙂 They have a beautiful sacrificing nature 🙂 Thank you 🙂

  7. Khushbu… You are a wonderful writer! I love trees too…but you wrote eloquently about trees and their sacrifices. You put love and creativity into your writing. The idea that we should make sacrifices is a wonderful continuation of your post, and so important for everyone to remember and practice. Too many people have no idea what it means to make a small sacrifice. Society has become greedy and used to instant gratification. Thanks so much for this lovely and meaningful post!

    1. Thanks for your wonderful comments Judy.. It means lot to me :)(Smiling!) Yeah Making a small sacrifice is importance and i agree with you, that the Society has become greedy and used to instant gratification. I hope that they may learn from tree one day 🙂 Your comment made my day 😉 🙂

  8. My heart just breaks when I drive by areas that have been clear cut, or when I pass a truck laden with freshly cut trees. I give a silent offering of thanks to them as I drive by. So glad you are writing about this and to read the comments of so many who agree with you. Time to go out and bless the trees on my land once again.

  9. Nicely done. 🙂 You gave an important message through this post of yours. I also previously tried to pass this same message, in my own way through on of my post. You did this one wonderfully. Great post. Keep up the good work going. 🙂

  10. Well said. Its so important for us to understand these concepts young and reminded of constantly when we get older. What a better place this would be if we just showed Love to another by being an example.

  11. Thankfully, the locality we live in has a lot of trees to help us get past the summer months with relative ease. I can’t imagine a world without the trees. Thank you for a beautiful reminder.

  12. I like your way of thinking i think that there is not only trees who learn us saacrifice even bees do it it works and works and we take there honey without giving back nything to them .I think in some how the hole nature learn to us how to give more then get .

  13. As a child climbing trees was one of my favourite things to do. I would like to see more trees in the pastures I drive by to shield the horses from the elements. Trees are such great protectors 🙂 Thank you your post it has brought back fond memories:)

  14. I have a great respect for anyone who can appreciate the beauty of a tree 🙂 I teach all the small folks in my family to hug them 😛 🙂 L x

  15. My brother suggested I might like this web site. He was entirely right. This post truly made my day. You cann’t imagine simply how much time I had spent for this information! Thanks!
