Jesus said therefore, “What is the kingdom of God like? And to what shall I compare it? It is like a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his garden, and it grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air made nests in its branches.”
We didn’t have much rain this year in Odessa, so the trees didn’t look like they would produce much color. It was late in the season when one day, all of a sudden, they popped out the gold! We had sort of lost hope, but God reminded us that He is the one who brings growth AND beautiful color! This goes for people as well as trees. Trust in his ways and in his timing.
