Buds are appearing on the bushes outside my window; plump with the promise of life and vitality. Sloshy snow is gently falling, yet they persist in their greening emergence.
And I contemplate growing things
Spring is coming, and with it ~ new life. Soon it will be time to plant the seeds that will become the food we eat and the flowers we admire. As the earth warms and the sun moves closer, I am reminded of another Son and how He warms hearts and helps them to grow.
Our recent celebration of Jesus’ resurrection reminds us that He has given us another chance, a chance at new life. A chance to grow in love and faith as we hang on to the promise of new life with Him. This is not only for our future selves, it is also for who we are now. Yes, one day all believer’s will live in His glorious presence, but TODAY we can live in His glorious PRESENTS!
I pray that we will all recognize the gifts that He has given us – and determine to grow in them.
So today, as I plant my seeds for the future – both for food, and love for my fellow man, I will remember the sun/Son that will warm those seeds and help them to grow into something beautiful!
TODAY we have our monthly giveaway.
