REBORN AND REFRESHED

Like The Garden Grows

Too often I focus on the fallen leaves

Scattered on my weed covered bit of earth.

Signs of death and decay?

Perhaps, and yet . .  .

A rake,

A hoe,

A change of focus,

And new buds and blossoms appear .  . .

Or perhaps they lay in wait all along.

Beyond the shadows shines the blazing sun!

The Gift of Faith

A distant rumble

cannot darken my delight

in nature’s beauty

Lily

When I got my first home, knowing nothing of gardening, I was amazed when the neglected yard suddenly, come Spring, had lilies in bloom!  When I relocated some years later filled with hopes and dreams, I also faced many unexpected challenges. I still do. Come spring though, I was again surprised by lilies!  I still know nothing about gardening, but I know my Savior’s redeeming love.  I saw it that day in the lilies He gave to me! The lilies bloomed again today!

A glove, a pitcher

sitting beside me empty

Were it not

for the decay of yesterday

how would come

the redemption?
