Blooms are everywhere! This is actually the first year for all of my gorgeous Oleander's to bloom, and I couldn't be happier with all the beautiful color that is surrounds our home.
Just this morning...while I was out in the yard....looking at all of my plants, I had this thought that I would like to share.
Here in East Texas....we have had a WHOLE lot of rain and, with this rain...comes Thunderstorms! Some days, it has just been rain...while on other days, we have seen lots of wind, thunder, lightning, mixed with all the rain.
While checking out my pomegranate bush....I noticed that there were so many of the precious blooms on the ground. It was evident that the wind and rain had tossed them about, and in just a few days, it will be as if they never existed.
As Christians....if we are not careful,...OUR WITNESS....can be blown with the wind, as if it never existed.
ALL of our good works....can quickly be destroyed if our LIGHT grows dim, we when are in the midst of anger.
We need to be extremely cautious with the communications that pass from our tongue, out into the world.
Words we say....can be blown like the wind...(which destroyed my blooms) and can shatter our Christian witness.
Isn't this a gorgeous bloom! It's a bloom that will reap a wonderful tasting pomegranate...in just a few months....if the winds let it remain.
We must cover ourselves with the word of God....in order to protect our testimony.
Food for thought!
