So, the other day I was out in the yard and noticed a new flower. It got me to thinking. Transformation. The colors exploded in front of me and all I could think about was just yesterday – this thing was green and closed. Today – it is wild and open, vibrant and bringing joy. When will it die? I don’t know. I do know that it will, but such is the cycle of life. Enjoy it while it is here.
God of life and death and all the parts in between – come. Walk with me a while, speak softly to my heart, whisper sweet somethings that will spark hope and life and color. In Jesus name, Amen.
