Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

the seed within

“I think the secret of much of the unrest
and dissatisfaction with one’s self
and longing for a more vivid, expressive existence
is the thing planted deep in everyone -
turning toward the sun,
the love of a virtue and splendor that must be adored.
…One is always trying to tune one’s self
to an unheard perfection.”
- May Sarton

Until we seek God and give ourselves
completely to Him,
that seed that is planted within all of us
will never take root and blossom.

“God be prais'd,
that to believing souls gives light in darkness,
comfort in despair.”
- William Shakespeare
