The bougainvillea stands tall again and is happily resting
It is obvious that the remaining flowers are paler but still beautiful Maybe it will produce vibrant red ones again later.
Spring winds and rain buffet it but it is full of vibrant life because the foundation and root system are firmly anchored.
Isn’t this a valuable lesson for us ALL.
If we KNOW we are Children of an awesome God life will still buffet us and His pruning of what may be too heavy for us to carry (Health issues and aging often determine this). We too have to LEARN TO LEAN.
Let support keep us from falling over. Swallow pride listen to His Voice. Release what has gone. Live triumphantly in the now with HIM, In HIM and for Him.
We may externally be paler or less vibrant than before but let His LIGHT shine more vibrantly so unlike the bush our transformation will make what was before appear insignificant in the beauty ahead. .
Our Hope is ever skywards.
Rooted in the Word this ancient psalm inspired me as I look forward to our Sunday Worship Time on this chilly cloudy late spring morning.
Psm 84 The joy of dwelling with God.
For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand.
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God!
Than dwell in the tents of wickedness.
For the Lord God is a sun and shield,
The Lord will give Grace and Glory,
No good thing will He withhold,
For those who walk uprightly.
Thank God we have our SAVIOUR who shows us and leads us ever in His Way. A-men
