Of fruits and promises...

"By their fruits you will know them."
Matthew 7:16

It's so funny that I can have a fabulous, wonderfully productive day after which I fall into bed exhausted, yet fulfilled.  And then, the very next day is frustrated by fiscal year-ending shenanigans and canceled appointments, water turned off in our office building, and precious time spent waiting for the cable guy.  Just like that, it feels like the good fruit has turned sour! But good fruit can't change just like that. Good fruit is just may have difficult days and those are the days we are called to just pick up the cross and move forward.  God is just as lively in the mundane, difficult days as in the richest days of retreat, it just may take some imagination to find God. Good trees produce good fruit, but there will be days those fruit-heavy branches may be tossed about by wind and iffy situations.  But hang on!  The next day is a new one...with promises ripe for the picking! Love, heidi
