Posts Tagged ‘weeds’


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



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



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
