Consider the jonquils

I had really hoped by now I would be spending time in my garden and flower beds, but as you can see, I would get a bit chilly when taking a break in my backyard.

Since God seems intent on teaching me patience this spring, I decided to venture outside with a camera this morning instead.

After all, the snow was pretty. In fact, the camera didn’t even begin to capture the beauty.

And (to paraphrase Matthew 6:28) consider the jonquils in front of my house, God seemed to be saying. Most years, they would have bloomed in March and would be long gone by now.

But this year they are experts in the art of patience!
