“... God gave the growth.” 1 Corinthians 3:9
Dear St. John’s,
I stopped by our Pledge Garden today for the first time in a while and was in awe. The small plants we put in the ground earlier this summer now fill the space with beautiful flowers and foliage.
This week, I also visited the annual summer Drumming Camp at St. Stephen’s in Millburn, which several of the children in the Wilson House attended. There, I saw some children I hadn’t seen in person for two or more years because of COVID. Again, I was in awe of how tall they had grown and how beautifully they had “sprouted.”
As we go about our day-to-day tasks, we can’t always see the progress we are making or the growth of the seeds we plant or the projects we begin. But, thanks to God’s grace, the growth does occur. We may not see it for awhile, but keep the faith: The harvest is coming!
