" The Hazelnut tree has beautiful flowers and fruit. It can grow almost anywhere. It's resistant to disease, it's very hardy and resilient. That's how God sees you, he thinks you're beautiful and that you're going to bear good fruit in your life. You mustn't worry that you're no good. You're tough and able to resist the enemy. You'll grow in almost any situation."
A dear friend once shared this passage with me and I shall always be grateful. Hazel
