One night this week after a particularly rainy day I glanced outside and noticed a very vivid rainbow! I kid you not, I literally screamed like a kid on Christmas morning and ran outside. When I realized that there wasn’t just one rainbow I opened the back door and screamed again! Come to find out it was arcing right over the garden! And to be honest, the pictures don’t do it justice–it was so vivid and clear. You could literally pick out the individual colors so easily!
The rainbow is the perfect way to describe this week because God has been SO faithful in so many ways!
Starting on Sunday…We had our first Sunday morning class and worship service restriction-free! It’s the first time in 15 months that our family has attended a Sunday morning class and worship service! There are SO many things I don’t ever want to take for granted! Being able to gather and worship as we see fit in freedom. Seeing the smiles of so many, being able to be physically close to each other, and the sound of so many people singing praises to God…
Though most of this week has been either hot and muggy or cloudy and rainy, the weather has been great for the garden because everything has sprouted! The squash and pumpkins look good, the carrots and onions are growing well, and we’re really close to being able to harvest peas!
There were so many days in 2020 where I wondered if, when, and how life could ever go back to “normal”. It was so much different than I expected it would be but here we are! Despite my worry, fear, and complaining God has been faithful! He’s opened my eyes to areas in my life where I had grown dangerously complacent. I’ve seen the innumerable blessings right in front of me. Time and again He’s reminded me that He’s in control. I can’t help but be reminded that “…neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase” (1Corinthians 3:7).
Until next time,
