through His Word
I’m waiting for it to bloom. My dad surprised me by planting a hydrangea bush in the flower beds. What’s the color of the future buds? Blue, my favorite.
Right now it’s just a stubby little stick. But it’s taller than it was a month ago. If you didn’t know it was there, you would probably step on it if you were weeding the beds. Little but stout.
Some hopes of mine are little and stubby, but I trust God that they will bloom. A few hydrangea bushes have already budded in my life—dreams that came true. We’re working on the others. Or I should say, God is.
What dream are you waiting to bloom? Don’t give up. Pour some water, add some hope, put in the hard work, and let God flood it with sunshine. It may take some time to sprout, but God makes the most beautiful blooms. Flowers and dreams take patience and hard work, but are so worth it in the end.
This post is a part of the Five Minute Friday phenomenon. I’m glad to be a part of it. Everyone is given the same word, writes about for it a specified amount of time (5 min.), and they’re not supposed to edit it! All for the fun, and love, of writing. I hope you’ll join the phenomenon at Lisa-Jo Baker’s blog.
