Here's a look at what's blooming in the You Go Girl garden. All this beauty makes me contemplative. I am rarely still long enough to be contemplative. But today I was. I did nothing for a few minutes but think. In the quiet, I was reminded that:
God's creation reveals His glory.
His glory is my pleasure.
And as much as it pleases me to gaze upon such beauty,
it is even more gratifying to know that I am firmly planted in the garden of the King.
The God of the whole universe gazes upon me and you and sees beauty. (Can you believe it? Beauty! That's easy for me to say, but sometimes it's hard to believe.) He diligently pulls weeds that threaten to suffocate us, prunes branches that keep us from growing strong and healthy, and nourishes us with His own special brand of Miracle Gro.
It is a good thing to be blooming in the garden of the King.
Look at the lilies and how they grow. They don't work or make clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and gone tomorrow, won't he more surely care for you? Luke 12: 27
