It is a special gift to have your parents as friends later in life. With the day’s events shared and the conversation blossoming I notice across the yard there is more than discussion in bloom. I was shocked, “Mom, the flowers are in bloom again!” Although they “shouldn’t” be in bloom this late in the fall, they are. I excused myself from the table so I could capture this joyful entry on film. As I walked over I thought to myself, Isn’t this so God. Gardening books and man’s research say this flower should be entering a dormant stage BUT it hasn’t. The beauty takes my breath away and brings tears to my eyes. Thank you Jesus for blessing us with the opportunity to view it. My gosh…what could Heaven look like?
With bold and brilliant pinks it stands out among the reds, oranges, browns and yellows of a Central New York Autumn. Anything is possible with God…in His time. We all have something in our life we “wait” on. Some of us wait to hear our loved one has been found or if a publisher will choose to publish our book. Yet not everything is life altering. Sometimes we wait in line at the grocery store, in traffic, or for the birth of our first child. Regardless of the “what” we wait on…it is ALL in God’s time, not ours.
How are you living as you wait on the Lord? Have you accepted it is in God’s time, not yours? Are you making good choices and using your time wisely as you wait? What are you waiting on? How will you praise and thank God when the waiting is over?
