New Life in the Dead of Winter

Advent – Season of Hope

A small shoot springs up in the dirt-filled paper cup my grandson has brought home from school in mid-December.

Spring, not December, is planting time, but I fight the urge to speak this truth: I see the sprout growing against the season.

We sit and wonder together at the marvel God has done–bringing forth a shoot in the dead of winter. Perhaps with care the tender plant will live until spring, when we can transplant it in the garden.

As the earth brings forth its plants, and a garden makes its growth spring up, so will the Lord God make justice and praise spring up before all the nations.    Isaiah 61:11
