Flowers Fade

This is what my neighborhood looks like right now! Blooms everywhere! I loooove spring!

But if you look closely, you see these beauties are beginning to fade.

These fading tulips inspired me to appreciate the remaining blooms that much more. To take more time walking around my neighborhood enjoying every single flower.

Inspired me to be grateful for my sight.

Inspired me to thank the One who created this buffet for the eyes. The smorgasbord of colors and textures. The sheer variety of spring blooms.

If spring in Virginia can look like a fairyland….what does spring in His Kingdom look like?

Point to ponder while you wander….
The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.” Isaiah 40:8 ESV

Wonderful Wednesday, Have You Not Heard?

Everyone listen to Isaiah…he’s saying something important:

Why do you complain, people?

    Why do you say, “My way is hidden from the Lord;

    my cause is disregarded by my God”? 

Do you not know?

    Have you not heard? 

The Lord is the everlasting God,

    the Creator of the ends of the earth.

He will not grow tired or weary, 

    and his understanding no one can fathom. 

 He gives strength to the weary 

    and increases the power of the weak.

Even youths grow tired and weary,

    and young men stumble and fall; 

but those who hope in the Lord

    will renew their strength. 

They will soar on wings like eagles; 

    they will run and not grow weary,

    they will walk and not be faint.

Isaiah 40:28-31

Point to ponder while you wander…our tongues have the power to create. So rather than complain,  how about we start declaring the goodness of God over our situation?
