As We Turn . . .



Different stages of growth 
so obvious in the unfolding leaves and blooms 
remind me that as Christ followers,
we only grow, mature, and bloom 
as we turn toward His light. 

We need not compare our maturity to others
for He has a growth plan designed for each of us,
 an unfolding good plan full of hope and a future 
and blooms that add beauty and fragrance 
as we turn toward His light.


The unfolding of your words gives light.
Psalm 119:130

Sometimes I compare myself with those who can write so wonderfully about their faith. My faith is strong but I can't express it in words like others can.

What a breathtakingly beautiful magnolia picture, Glenda. Makes me hesitate to post mine.

Visiting with you is always a pleasure and an inspiration.
