Stick to it

Today I posted this on my facebook and was reminded to get back to blogging!

I enjoy writing, and I like how it helps me to focus at the end of each day, and yet so quickly I can lose the spaces that I have committed to making room for. So I am back to it and willing to go again.

Today was what I would call a warm winter day. In the summer if it were 50 degrees, we would all be in sweatshirts, but this morning I went out in my flip flops because the sun in Michigan in March just has a way of assuring us that spring is just around the corner.

And yet, what I saw today were small, ever so little, seedlings. We were encouraged to envision the growth and allow space in the pot for what is yet to come.

As I planted today, I was thinking of the words of one of my favorite Michael Card songs.

To hear with my heart
To see with my soul
To be guided by a hand I cannot hold
To trust in a way that I cannot see
That’s what faith must be
That’s what faith must be

img_7790I have faith that these seeds hold beautiful flowers that will bloom when nurtured and cared for. There are so many places I can go with that, but tonight I will marvel at how fun it was to play in the dirt, to spend time with friends and family, to share the hope and mystery of what our pots will look like in 6 weeks. I am grateful for the sunshine, the coming of spring and the promise of growth, beauty, and life!
