AND THEY HAVE FAITH

This is a little bunch of tulips that come up every spring in a spot impossible for growth. They are almost to the foundation--almost no sun and no rain or snow ever gets that far back. I have to remember to hand water them. That's fairly easy in the spring, when I can see them, but in the fall, when they are putting down roots, I totally forget. And yet they survive.
We are here on earth like these tulips. We have forgotten our father and Jesus. All we have to go on is the testimony of the prophets. And yet we believe and know we are watched over. And so we flourish and grow and sometimes we even bloom. We do because we have faith. And hope. Especially at Easter, when the faith in our Savior, who gives us the chance to be washed clean so we can return to our Father, is strong.

We all grow differently and in different places but we all grow because our Father loves us and wants us back. Whether we remember or not, we have hope and we believe.

You're a good egg, Lynne. No pun intended. Well, a little bit of a pun because it is Easter.

Last summer, I was amazed to see roses bushes blooming in yards of deserted homes, trumpet vines growing on light poles, and hollyhocks growing in dry vacant lots where both seemed to be surviving with no apparent source of water. These amazing examples of survival and your blog have made me think: If these amazing plants can survive with little or no water, maybe, just maybe, I can somehow find a way to live without Randy, but these beautiful little plants appear to be much stronger than I am.
