Blessings From The Compost Heap

I sit here seeing only ruin around me and being unable to climb out of its vastness and praying somehow His purpose in it will come to fruition.   I realize I may not see His purpose but there is peace to be found in knowing He uses all things.  As I did a bit of reading just now, this quote came to me:

All the flowers of tomorrow are the seeds of today.

– Anonymous –

It seems in life there are times when we, or I, are called to be the compost nourishing the seeds from which tomorrow’s flowers grow.  These times can be uncomfortable and even painful, but if it blesses the Lord, it is good.

A new season is coming and the flowers will bloom!


The pieces will all come together.  He will see to it.

  1. Compost heaps are potentially food for plants and eventually us (and coons and armadillos,too). Sure do like the quilt … is it finished?


  2. Martha…the quilt is beautiful, and so are you! I have no idea what you’re “going through” right now…but I do know that, whatever it is,
    you will be coming” out of it” VICTORIOUS! ALL things …even the darkest of times, work together for good for those who love Him…and YOU are certainly in that category. I’m praying and believing with you…
