such new beginnings

like the leaves of a burr oak

remind us of hope

And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit whom he has given us.

Romans 5:5 (NIV)

the flowers of spring

waited for the melting snow

delayed, not denied

The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food at the proper time. You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing.

Psalm 145:15-16

Three in One

flowers, rocks, water

make a beautiful trio

like you, me, and God

For where two or three are gathered together in my name, I am there in the midst of them.

after the rain came

the sun, in the azure sky

turned brown into green

He has made everything beautiful in its time.

Ecclesiastes 3:10a (NIV)

Twenty-two years ago, this summer, my life hit rock bottom. By God’s grace, I’m still here. Friend, if you’ve been there, you can make it too!


Spring Surprise

warm wind from the south

quickly turns cold from the north

“The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.“

Assurance of Spring

Everybody falls.

And, by God’s grace, we return

like flowers in spring.

The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of God endures forever.

Isaiah 40:8 (NIV)
