Thursday Tree Love - 28

Your life has a purpose
Your story is important
Your dreams count
Your voice matters
You  are bound to make an impact

huge and broad
This is the tree from St. Joseph Vaz Spiritual Renewal Centre, Cruz Dos Milagres, Old Goa, wherein I attended a National Women’s Convention organized by the Young Women Christian Association, India this month.

Glad to be part of this programme and the convention’s theme was “Women Against Violence”
One of the purposes of this convention was to change the perspectives, in addressing this issue, break the silence in our souls; the silence that promotes violence, the silence that tolerates violence and the silence that leads to complacency.

Thursday Tree love
  is a photo feature on Parul’s blog hosted on second and fourth Thursday of every month.   

You are most welcome to join in, all you need to do is:

1.Post a picture of a tree on your blog

Thank you for reading this post;

May you be blessed!


  1. What a great capture! and such an inspiring message, it is an absolute need to raise awareness against "Women for violence". glad to join to for #Thrusdaytreelove

    1. Thank you Surbhi, happy to connect with you and appreciate your kind words:)

  2. I love the quote at the beginning Genevieve .. trees fulfil their function and we as individuals can as well ...

    1. Hi Susan, looks like ages I have heard from you, thank you for connecting with me:) nice to know you loved the quote and agree with you about trees... yes every living thing on this earth has a purpose to fulfill...

  3. What a wonderful thought! I guess we all can and do make a difference to people around us.. the thing is we ourselves dont realise this ... Wonderful tree.. at first glance I thought the pole was actually supporting it but a closer look showed it is a lamp post!

    1. Thanks Archana, for the affirmation, yes we can all do our bit.. I am sure you are inspiring through your posts... the tree stands independently, and there is a lamp post next to it.

  4. Beautiful tree and capture. Was that a pole with light on it? If yes, must have been so beautiful in the night too with light peeping in and out.
    Your Goa trip was good, Angela. Glad you joined and shared this with us. :)

    1. Thanks parul:) yes its a pole with a light on it. The women's convention was inaugurated in the early hours with a procession of women representing from various regions of our country. Just opposite the tree is a huge ground. I clicked this in the morning. I am sure it would be great in the night.. Now its become a habit for me to keep looking for trees:) and capture them in my cell phone... thanks for this tree love exercise and feels so good to spread green virtually:)
