Don't Get in a Hurry!


It . . .


takes . . .


time . . .


to . . .

blossom!!

And it takes time to mature as a Christian!

Time and that often-shunned "C word."

C-o-m-m-i-t-m-e-n-t!

I'm glad that the Master Gardener is patient, loving, and knows just what's best to ensure that I grow. Even the pruning (Ouch!) is done with gentle hands and at just the right time!

I'm thankful that "He's still working on me . . . to make me what I ought to be . . . "

In His time, in His time;
He makes all things beautiful in His time.
Lord, please show me every day
As you're teaching me Your way,
That You do just what You say
In Your time.

This is my favorite post of yours yet. I love the comparison of the flower blooming to us maturing as Christians. Thank goodness, He is the master gardener. Carla

Our roses won't bloom probably til May--but when they do, I'll share!!!!!!

An awesome sequence of photos! And some real truths to go along with them. It fits together perfectly. As many things as Jesus had to do in his short life, the bible never speaks of him rushing anywhere!

Love how you put that together! I'm so grateful for the loving tending that our Heavenly Father does to bring us to blossom as we should! Lovely photos!

That was just beautiful as were the Roses. Every day we are being molded and shaped just the way He wants us to be.
