I do not have an easy life. Thoughts tumbled in my mind, trying to find reasons for others’ actions. I finally had to let go of the jumbled mass of thought because there was no resolution. I looked out the kitchen window and saw roses. It was the New Dawn come to visit, knocking at my window! I opened the kitchen window and the roses rushed in, laying their furled velvet skirts on my window sill.
“I know where you live” was the gentle thought that entered my mind. “I know where you are. I know what imprisons you. I have not forgotten.”
The roses had grown over 30 feet to reach my kitchen window from the ground below.
I leaned over the kitchen sink and smelled the rose. The delicious fragrance filled my senses and I knew everything would be ok. Maybe not today but there is always hope for tomorrow.
“Wait for the LORD; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the LORD.” Psalm 27:14
sending you love, prayers, and hope for your heart!
Thank you so much, Lisa.
Beautiful. I especially like the image of the roses climbing 30 feet to come to you.
Thank you. The roses weren’t supposed to grow more than 20 feet, which would have reached the top of the deck stairs. I’m amazed that they reached over 35 feet so far, passing in front of the kitchen window and reaching around the corner to the back door. I don’t fertilize them, prune them or do any special care at all, like a good gardener should. But I do talk to them. ;)
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
“Teach me Lord, …..please Lord, …..teach me to wait.”
Thank you, Donna, that is a beautiful scripture.
