But you know that the Lord is wonderful and just when you think that something is completely destroyed, He comes along and shows you that there's always new beginnings. Kinda like when you're going through a really tough patch in your life and you're thinking that everything is over and there's no way that you could get past it and then you realizing that there's a silver lining, an open door you completely missed.
When I walked out into the backyard yesterday and saw that yet another branch of the tree had come down on it's own, at first I was heartbroken, here was this amazing tree just falling apart, but as I started walking around it to try and understand why it was happening, my eye caught glimpses of new beginnings. It was like the Lord was showing me that "Hey, see this awful branch torn off? But look at what is around it"
So I'm showing you, who knows, maybe it will mean nothing to some of you, maybe it will give you hope if you're going through a hard time, or maybe just maybe it will make you look at sad times as new beginnings. If nothing else, it will show you beautiful nature at work.
Talk about amazing, those little green shots growing out of nowhere
This is the branch from the first part of the tree that fell off, you can see how it snapped right off there. But look at the green shoots coming up around the ugly break.
Second branch that broke off surrounded by green shoots. Let me tell you, they smell heavenly, if you've never smelled a lemon tree plant/flower, you don't know what you're missing.
Nicholas had a good time stepping between the broken branch and trying to figure out how it came down
Then because you can never have one sibling do something without the other getting to do it too, it was Jasmine's turn to go exploring.
HEY, let go of that lemon, don't you dare pull it off the tree.....Caught in the act!
Look how tiny those little buds are? I'm in awe!
Miss Bella and Miss Lola sat the door and watched us, not quite sure what we were doing to the tree.
So how does YOUR garden grow??? And just how do you ladies keep such beautiful plants alive? I've seen your blogs, I've seen your photos and I can't believe that I am the only "thumb of death" out there. What's the easiest plant to keep alive? Give me advice, please, anything, I just want to grow a garden! *stomps foot*
