We are glad that you have visited our blog.
The name came about as I was searching for one with meaning and purpose, a sort of for me, a serious undertaking. This is what the Bible Dictionary states based on Isa. 41:19 concerning Shittah tree (acaia) and the Mimosa-Nilotica in particular:
“Shittah wood was employed in making the various parts of the tabernacle in the wilderness, and must therefore have been indigenous in the desert in which the Israelites wandered. It was the acacia or mimosa (Acacia Nilotica and A. seyal).”
“The wild acacia (Mimosa Nilotica), under the name of sunt, everywhere represents the seneh, or senna, of the burning bush. A slightly different form of the tree, equally common under the name of seyal, is the ancient ‘shittah,’ or, as more usually expressed in the plural form, the ‘shittim,’ of which the tabernacle was made.” Stanley’s Sinai, etc. (Ex. 25:10, 13, 23, 28).
The Mimosa Tree Blog will be whatever this writer is led to present and is offered on the alter to the Lord each stroke to inspire, encourage, learn, live life as God envisioned. The additional moniker is also as inspiring, too, and the “the “Blessed” road less traveled” was also inspired to be stated as it is because mankind is always looking for true peace, blessings and prosperity as mankind travels the road of life. Sadly, we forget who is the true author of the Blessed road and that is the path we are all trying to find and/or complete; hence, it is less traveled than the other roads we take.
