I think that we have all heard the saying April showers bring May flowers. Well as we transition into the month of May I began to think about the fact that May is the month that many people will be putting time, energy, and money into planting and tending to their flower gardens and planters. Why is this time, energy, and money worth it, why do we bother? Each one of you may have your own answer to this question but for me the answer is that without all of us doing our part our world would become barren and dull. Our individual effort adds vibrancy to our world. This is "why we bother?" And do you know what, what is true of our efforts to planting flowers is true of our relationship with God. Things that are worth it take time, energy, and money. May all of our efforts bring vibrancy to our lives.
God’s continued peace,
