The Life-Giver

Everywhere we look new life is popping up around us in Madagascar. I love this time of year here, as well as the time when everything is full bloom and filling every empty space in our yard. But right now, each new bud and bloom is another reminder of the Who is behind it all.

We have moved plants from here to there. Some new pots have been placed at our front door, and clippings have been planted in them---hoping that beauty will take the place of once empty space.

The larger bushes that we pruned way back at the beginning of winter show signs of early life. Little greenery dots branches.

We can sow, but we can't grow these beauties. I look outside and creation truly does declare the wonders of God. He is behind each bud as it opens, and forming each tender petal. He gives life to these incredible creations.

The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they display
There is no speech or language
where their voice is not heard.
Their voice goes out into all the
their words to the ends of the
Psalm 19:1-4
