As I’m sure you all know, trees grow with knot holes. The piece of firewood in the picture below had a hole from the outside as big around as my thumb.
Inside, the hole was about a two cubic inch space, which would be a pretty nice spot for a small bird or some insects!!
That rational scientist who lives in my brain thinks: “Hhmmm, trees evolved in such a way that they provide little houses for animals. That’s convenient.”
The mystic in my heart thinks: “Baruch HaShem!! How small are the odds that Reality would unfold in such a way that trees would evolve to have houses for animals??? It’s truly a miracle!!!”
The choice, once again, is up to each of us . . .
So . . . what do you see — coincidence or miracle??
