On Monday Morning

Going to church on Sunday is good
And hearing the Bible’s just fine
And singing God’s praise is something we should
As they hand us the bread and the wine

But Monday morn as we start the new week
When we put on our shirt and our shoes
We have to begin to put into practice 
The stuff that we learned in the pews!

Bottlebrush Tree Flowers

San Francisco 04 074

While it lacks in comparison to a rose in fragrance and it struggles to compare to the stunning colors of crab-apple or cherry  blossoms; this special little flower is able to withstand drought while the roses are wilting. So on days when you are feeling that the other flowers in God’s garden are so much more significant than you are, try to remember that you can be like a bottle-brush flower. In times of drought you may be an oasis for a thirsty soul.

The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them, And the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose Isaiah 35:1
