I am not certain what the name of this beautiful flowering bush is
but I am certain that the colors I see flung about the earth these days
were meant, by God, to soothe the eye after a cold, barren winter.
The growing warmth and days of sunshine have coaxed out bits of color here and there,
and a full riot in other places.
God certainly cannot be accused of being boring or stuffy.
His mercy and kindness in the season changes
remind me to allow Him to craft His work in my own life;
reminds me to be patient with others-
give them time to grow.
And as I allow Him to paint His broad and gentle colors in my own life
perhaps a weary soul will look at me and be encouraged- refreshed.
Oh, sing to the Lord a new song! Sing to the Lord, all the earth.
