Spring on the little island where we share the Good News, is marked by these brightly, blood-colored Flamboyant trees. This year we often travelled through areas where we were surrounded by them. Every time the invitation from God’s word in Isaiah 1:1 resounded clearly in my mind. I could imagine God washing away my dark uglyness and filling me with a fragrant beauty like the flowers of the trees. It gave me courage to face all the struggles of my own heart with a new expectation of good things.
