With all the warm weather we’ve been having this winter the rose bush in my front yard has just bloomed and it’s beautiful! I don’t recall ever having roses in January before. Once again, I see the beauty of God’s handiwork, especially out of season. What a gift it is in the winter. Have you noticed that after all the rain we got last week our grass is green again? It woke up and started growing again. It’s amazing to see.
It also reminds me that God’s love and His mercies are new every morning. Brand new.
“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Thy faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23
So look around you on these early 2016 January days. God’s beauty is all around us. I know, I know, it’s odd that’s it’s out of season. But enjoy it while it’s here. And let it remind you that your Father’s love and mercies fail not and are new every morning. Even in January 2016!
Happy New Year Peace Family!
