I believe that this is one of the earth's finest moments that the sun lifting yellows and greens into life tiny poplar leaves is much like G-d's own Spirit of love lifting life into me.
I believe that the word of G-d has many times been planted in my life, often because of another who received the the seed in ready soil, brought forth a harvest, and shared that goodness with me.
I believe that the call to be a sow er of the word is a privilege and a blessing that no one can ever earn the right or claim the duty, that it is gift freely given and a ministry to be constantly celebrated in gratitude.
I believe that great things can come forth even from the tiniest seed planted in love and cared for tenderly in the heart of another.
I believe that usually only G-d knows what sprouting and greening will come from the Word planted through my ministry. I am content in knowing that I have tried, with the Sow er's grace, to seed that Word with faith and Joy.
I believe that even the most insignificant aspects of life can be the seed of G-d's gifting, that deeper faith can root and mature in very ordinary soil.
I believe that some dying of seed has to take place before it can give itself over to life, that every heart has its germination time, its dark moment, before the future hallowedness of harvest comes.
I believe it takes much patience to sow a seed, and freely give it away to the heart of the earth, to allow it to take root and to grow in its own good time.
I believe that my life will always know its season of hope that I will find flowers after every finality of ice and snow, that I will find green, growing things after every harsh, barren reign of winter's rage.
and most of all...
I believe in the sow er of all seeds, the G-d of Spring time, the Giver or all good growing things my Lord and my G-d.
