Spring is here!

redPatty and I are busy planting flowers. Each day we walk around our home checking the progress of each plant. We want to make sure there are no problems. In a few weeks we will be checking for flowers. All too soon it will be fall and the flowers will be gone.

I conducted a funeral last week for a dear saint in our church. One of the scriptures the family requested was from Isaiah 40:

All people are grass,

   their constancy is like the flower of the field.

The grass withers, the flower fades,

   when the breath of the Lord blows upon it;

   surely the people are grass.

I am convinced that God checks on each of us just as Patty and I check our flowers.

One thought on “Spring is here!

  1. Tom B says:

    I love Isaiah 40, and also really like the next verse in Isaiah 40:
    The grass withers and the flowers fall,
    but the word of our God endures forever.”
