Most of us understand what a pattern is as shown in this image, but is it possible that patterns exist in you and I? A tree is a great example of roots and branches and in fact Scripture refers to roots, trees, vines and branches in several places.

A seed gives way to a root, the starting point of an existence, which grows up and out of the ground and quickly forms branches and leaves, and in many cases, fruit. But during the life of the tree, the roots remain, and in fact grow larger and more seated. More rooted as we say some times to things.
