"For as the earth brings forth her bud, and as the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations." Isaiah 61:11
Jonah has been talking about these "fuzzy blooms" all winter. Each time he's mentioned them, I've smiled and nodded not truly believing they were going to bloom. I just thought that was how the limbs of this tree looked bare.
Today, when I was loading the kids up in the car, I looked over and saw this. I was amazed that this tree was:
2. Blooming in February.
3. So beautiful juxtaposed with the fuzzy bud and drabness of winter all around it.
How my 4 year old knew this tree would bloom, I have no idea. Maybe he's smarter than me, or maybe, like Jesus said, he possesses a type of faith I do not have to see and believe the things God takes time to produce.
