Bloom where God plants you
We've been so busy the last few weeks, I haven't even been out there to notice that something was sprouting up among the bricks.
But there it is, blooming and bringing joy to whomever happens to glance its direction. I know it made me smile today.
And isn't it just like my Lord to once again teach me something through a little lonely snapdragon blooming in a hot, neglected spot.
It is as if God said, "My child, bloom where I plant you-- even when it is tight and dry and tough."
Oh, Lord, I'm listening. Let me bloom.
