I Am the Vine May 3, 2015 By Jean Wise Share this post: Share on Facebook Share on Pinterest Share on LinkedIn Share on Email
Last fall I planted my fist Concord vines. I can see them from my kitchen window, and I had nothing but faith to believe they were alive shortly after they were in the ground. This Sunday, my daughters and walked out to see if there was any signs of life, and to our great surprise, the vines were covered in buds and unfurling pink leaves. We rejoiced at all these vines would become.
Such a beautiful picture. He is the vine… my strength, source of life, the one who gives me beauty and fruit to share with the world. I am the branches, the one commanded to carry forth his plan, of no strength of my own, yet a carrier of all I need thanks to the vine. Not only for myself, but for all that will come and partake.

Hi Jean! What pretty art works! Scripture really does fill the heart and move the hands.
Hope you’re having a good Sunday 🙂
