>Sweet Springtime


      Sow for yourselves righteousness, reap the fruit of unfailing love
and break up your unplowed ground; 
for it is time to seek the Lord, until He comes and showers righteousness on you 
~ Hosea 10:12
The seed will grow well, the vine will yield its fruit, the ground will produce its crops, and the heavens will drop their dew. I will give all these things as an inheritance to the remnant of this people
~ Zechariah 8:12 
 All of the world the gospel is bearing fruit and growing, just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and understood God’s grace in all its truth. ~ Colossians 1:6

“That’s what summer is: God’s messenger with a sun-soaked, tree-green, flower-blooming, lake-glistening letter of love to show us what he is planning for us in the age to come—’things which the eye has not seen and ear has not heard, and which have not entered into the heart of man, God has prepared for those who love him’ ” ~ John Piper
