Tiny seed starting pots with seedlings growing.

Spine uncurling
Limbs unfurling
Breaking through darkness
with arms lifted high

Full of life
Full of worship
Pregnant with promise
a future of fruit-laden vines

Unafraid of attackers
Undeterred by the doubters
Deaf to untruths and lies

Having known only life
and dependence on Maker
Having never seen otherwise

Having waited dormant
For the moment He told it
To spring forth, to
jump up and try

A seed grows in springtime
into a seedling
Grows bravely and
doesn’t know why


Dozens of seedling pots with plant starts growing.
I want to share this beautiful life with others and teach them the lessons we've learned along the way. Welcome to Roots and Refuge, friend. I am so glad you're here.
