Lord, every year
it gets a little harder
to get down and up in the garden.
Will this year be our last?
Yesterday my husband
trimmed the rose bush,
while I cut down dead stalks.
We look forward
to roses and other flowers
as the season moves on.
Lord, you expect us to
bear fruit for your kingdom.
You gave your life
to show us your love.
How shall we show
your love for others today?
John 15:1-2
“I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinegrower.  He removes every branch in me that bears no fruit.   Every branch that bears fruit he prunes to make it bear more fruit.”
