bluebells

on spring days like today, i like to walk through my gardens

in search of new life

discover new blossoms

*

it’s been about a week since last i’ve ambled

 what i saw was not what i was expecting

weeds

everywhere

overwhelming weeds

what a mess

when did this happen?

*

as i walked on

overcome with the work that lay ahead

discouragement was replaced with delight

bluebells i had forgotten

random tulips planted by squirrels

even dutchman’s breeches a bird left behind

*

i couldn’t help but think about life

we can make such a mess of it

mistakes, lies, broken promises

selfishness,

ingratitude

like weeds sin invades

wounds the heart

and chokes the spirit

*

but amidst the sea of pain

grace blossoms

God is there

showering blessings

small joys spring up

hidden among the weeds

we just need to seek them

*

Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.

I Chronicles 16:11

 *

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.

Romans 12:12
