Make a Fig Tree to Pray under

At mass on Wednesday the Gospel was this:

Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and said of him,
"Here is a true child of Israel.
There is no duplicity in him."
Nathanael said to him, "How do you know me?"
Jesus answered and said to him,
"Before Philip called you, I saw you under the fig tree."
Nathanael answered him,
"Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel."
Jesus answered and said to him,
"Do you believe
because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree?
You will see greater things than this."
And he said to him, "Amen, amen, I say to you,
you will see heaven opened
and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man."

John 1:47-51

Well. It made me want to have a fig tree too for Jesus to see me under. And. I made this!

It's up at the end of my bunk bed so I can pray there under my secluded little fig tree!

Construction time: 45 minutes
Construction cost: $.02

(For real was calculated. leaves are from a pack of paper my mom bought for a penny, the trunk is a paper bag from a store [free] and i used 1/4 of a green crayon.. which was 1 of 24 in a 24 cent pack)

Oh surprise too! I found out my phone could take pictures in different colors too so see below my fig tree in Sepia and Negative!
