We have had a hard year … as have many people in this changing world today. I was feeling particularly sorry for my personal problems one day and decided to go for a walk to clear my head. It was a gorgeous day, a sharp contrast to my murky mood. I began to pray for God to help me to understand why things were happening the way they were and to give me the strength and wisdom to get through it … Thankfully, I took my camera along …
I noted the brown, dry grass crunching underfoot. Everything, in the midst of what was supposed to be the dawn of spring, was still dead and lifeless.
Until … I stopped and saw a small, white flower peeking out from among the brown grass!
I began searching for more … and began to happily play hopscotch trying to avoid the bounty of blooms scattered across the native grass carpet.
I found many beautiful things on that walk.
And by the time I got back to the house, I again prayed to God. I thanked him for the beauty he created, the incredible land we are so blessed to live on:
And the gentle way he showed me that even though things in my crazy life look tough now, there is hope and life on the way …
Brighter days are coming, and God is in the midst of us, holding our hand.
