A Beautiful Harvest…the magnificent gift that you are to others never fades…
“For you created my innermost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” Psalm 139:13-14
A Beautiful Harvest
Just think of how tiny you were, not much more than a thought.
Like a tiny seed that sprouts the most delicate leaves;
You were formed hidden in darkness…then you were born…
A beautiful harvest
As you began to grow and explore this amazing world,
Like petals of a flower, your talents began to blossom.
Your fragrance enhanced the world as only you can…
A beautiful harvest
As you matured through the seasons of your life,
Facing the storms, embracing the sun, enduring the harsh cold.
The magnificent gift that you are to others never fades…your life…
is a beautiful harvest

I love to nurture my garden and watch it grow as it changes from season to season. It’s so exciting to see how a single blossom starts out as a tiny spec, pinched closed so tightly that it is hard to determine what type of flower it will become. Then, little by little, as each bud absorbs all that it needs from the brilliance of the sun above, and the rich nutrients of the earth below, until they unfold into the most magnificent flowers. When my garden is fully adorned with its colorful bouquets, indeed it brings forth a beautiful harvest.
I believe that a similar beautiful harvest happens, when we surrender our hearts over to an abiding relationship with Jesus Christ. In the quietness of the soul, a miraculous transformation takes place. There, through the work of the Holy Spirit, like seeds in nature, our hearts are reborn, nurtured and matured. In time, the beautiful harvest of what God has planted within us is revealed to the world.
May you consider yielding your heart over to Jesus Christ…and may what he plants within you produce a beautiful harvest to share with those around you.
Peace and love,
