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

April 02, 2012 (tight in a bud)

tight in a bud
just outside our front door
(captured 3/31/12)

“For all of us it should be unthinkable
to keep to ourselves
the knowledge that God's ultimate delight
is to do the greatest good for others
by letting them share
in the supreme joy He has in Himself.
How could any of us enjoy heaven
unless we mobilized our time,
talents and treasure to do our utmost
to get the good news to the rest of the world?
Sadly, many professing Christians
do not feel this imperative demand
because they, through unbelief,
are themselves not experiencing
God's great joy and peace.”
- Daniel Fuller

“And the day came when the risk
to remain tight in a bud was more painful
than the risk it took to blossom.”
- Anais Nin
