Day Day One: Unlock the Mind for Blogging University 101. Spring is on my mind, so here are my thoughts on this great season!
And the trees are in bloom, at least some of them. If I look close, I can see branches with buds of leaves on trees that look bare. I have seen trees with red blossoms on them. Which brings me to the question: if trees produce oxygen by photosynthesis, by means of green leaves, how do trees with no green leaves produce oxygen? Last summer, I saw a man standing near one of those red trees and I asked him my question, but he didn’t know. I have seen trees covered with white blossoms, but if I looked closely, I could see green leaves hiding behind the white blossoms. I didn’t see any on red-blossom trees.
I am thankful that God sends spring after winter. Easter reminds me of that. After Jesus’ death, his resurrection, which means new life for us in Him. My life in my relationship with Him is sometimes, sad to say, like that of nature’s spring, up and down. But I am thankful that He loves me and as I abide in Him, He changes me to be more like Himself. Then, I bear fruit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, self-control (from Ephesians 5:22, 23).
Father, thanks for spring.
Thanks Blogging University.
