Here Comes Our Tulip

See the source image

A little good news, for a change:

The sun is out today–finally!–I took a bike ride, and the first green shoot of our ancient tulip by the front door has peeked out from under the leaf litter. I don’t know how long a tulip lives, but we’ve been here forty years and I can’t remember a spring without this flower.

While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.   –Genesis 8:22

The Lord is not asleep at His post, nor has He forgotten His creation, which includes us. The flowers awakening for the spring have a message for us: “God is nigh.”

  1. A reminder that Our Lord is near – always, and that through His grace, hope springs forth and we are blessed.
