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

May 9, 2009

a bit of brightness

Mowing in between all the rain
we have been having here the past two weeks,
I mowed around this wild strawberry.
Not a perfect specimen,
with a torn leaf and one torn petal,
it reminds me of our trek through life.
Rarely do we get by without the scars of life.

Nonetheless, we can still,
as this lone flower,
bring a bit of brightness
(and sweet productive fruit)
to an otherwise drab surrounding.
