Evan recently found this broken-off hyacinth bud in our yard. It was light green, tightly closed, and looked ‘dead’. He encouraged me to put it into water and thought it might still bloom.
I was doubtful… and totally astonished when after about three days, it did! It made think about the power of water itself—a basic compound— essential for life, and wonder what areas could I experience transformation in by simply ‘watering’. I’m currently reading Soundtracks by Jon Acuff, and working on removing what the author brilliantly refers to as "lying, unhelpful, unkind thoughts" and replacing them with thoughts that are “true, helpful, and kind”. If I'm consistent, in time I’m hoping to see big changes. How about you? Any areas in your life that could use watering?
"Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose."
Proverbs 18:21 MSG
