April Showers Bring May Flowers … Sometimes

April Showers Bring May Flowers … Sometimes

Spread the love

But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.

2 Peter 3:18 (NIV)

I do not like to curse myself but I’m 99% positive that I have a ‘brown’ thumb when it comes to gardening and growing flowers.

I’ve tried planting flowers outside and growing potted plants inside but invariably end up killing them – I water them too much or don’t give them enough liquid.

I just can’t make them grow!

But glory to God I can ‘grow’ in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ by reading the Bible, studying and meditating on His Word, spending intimate time with Him and fellowshipping with other saints.

Prayerfully, April showers will bring May flowers for you but I’ve retired. I guess I’ll contact a landscaper this year.

  1. Yes, glory to God that we can grow in Him! That is even better than flowers. I must confess that nature and flowers heal me like nothing else can. My granddaughter says she has a brown thumb also!
