After weeks and weeks of watering what we thought was a fuzzy-leafed weed.....behold, a new thing-beautiful purple flowers.
The story goes, over a year ago we planted some wildflower seeds. Nothing happened. We moved, and Bethany continued to faithfully water-every Monday, Wednesday, & Friday.....exactly as she had scheduled. Then something green with fuzzy little leaves grew in plain view. She continued to water. We talked a couple of times about feeling like just pulling it up, but we didn't. And this is what happened one beautiful day, not too long ago.
Lessons learned: Too many to name, but could start with Isaiah 43:18-19 which says, "Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?"
