Our First Flowers of 2018

See the source image

It’s quite cold here this morning, and we have a snowstorm heading our way, according to the weather forecast. But today we have flowers–little white snowdrops, a tidy little crop of them, out on the front lawn. And next to our door, Patty’s hellebore has just pushed up its first shoots.

This is God’s stuff. This is His way of telling us, “God is nigh.” Telling us we’re not alone, He’s still here watching over us: nature carries on according to His plan.

We ought to love the Father’s handiwork. When He made the heavens and the earth, and all that is in them, He pronounced it very good: as indeed it is.
