New Growth

There was my pastor wearing a nice black suit with a nice white pressed shirt, a nice dark blue tie with black stripes as well.

The background was black.

I was there too in this dark place, and I saw my pastor coming over to me with a see through plastic container, kind of like a container from a deli sandwich.  

In this container was some rich soil, and a seedling was growing inside.  So I knelt to the ground and replanted this seedling into the larger garden at my feet and I knew that my pastor told me that I must guard this new growth and nurture and water it to the best of my ability, that this little seedling had much worth.

    Hi Susan. Nice write about having faith, perhaps the faith of a mustard seed. Ken
