A Crocus Blooms

Thursday, April 23rd, 2009

Sometimes God’s planning just amazes me. Sometimes when it seems that winter will last an eternity, a crocus blooms.

 God knows that we need crocus. In life as in nature, there are times that are dark and cold, and when they go on too long we are in danger of despair. Just as we can’t change the weather, we sometimes can’t change the cold and gray days in our lives. Wishing the winter over doesn’t make it go away.

 But now and then, God sends flowers to remind us that better weather is on the way. A phone call from a friend, a song, a funny e-mail. God says He has plans to give us a future and a hope. At just the right time, a crocus blooms, and we are reminded that spring will come, sooner than we think.
