Hackberry and Bolder

I found this boulder

with a Hackberry sapling growing out of a crack.

It always amazies me to see trees take root in impossible situations such as this bolder. But given some dirt and light a plant will attemp to grow. The lesson I get from this is to never give up. No matter how bad the situation God will make a way where there is no way. Faith is believing in something God has promised even though it does not yet exist. Just because you haven’t seen God do something of this magnatude does not mean He will not do it.

Romans 4:17 B God, who gives life to the dead and calls into being that which does not exist. Posted by Picasa

Cliff Swallow @ Kansas River

Posted by Picasa

We stayed at a motel at Wamego, KS I got out and walked through town and found the
Kansas River or Kaw.
Walking down to the river bank there were an aboundance of Cliff Swallows. They were
darting back and forth catching bugs. What a difference it was stitting next to the motel and standing on the river bank watching nature. For me life is much richer in nature.

Here is a picture of their nest under the 99 hwy bridge.

The riches of nature that morning remind me of the abundant life that we have in Jesus

John 10:10 "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.”
