This surprised Ent, or maybe a tree bear, in the wood stump outside our back door made me smile today. He or she looks a little shocked. Or maybe about to burst into song? Do not underestimate the spiritual weapon of laughter – for those of us who are sensitive, or prone to bouts of depression, for those of us who are lonely or feeling hopeless – the ability to see something innocent to smile or chuckle at is priceless indeed.
