Growing in the between time.

Hello world. I am not sure if anyone actually reads this... but if you do... I am very sorry it has been so long since I have written. I would like to think that I would be good at this blogging thing due to my love for words; however, I also have a love for many other things which have, in recent days, taken precedence over this here blog. I am sure you are expecting me to update you on all that has happened during my seiesta from blogging ( which I will now refer to as "The between time"), but that is not really my style.  I am not really one for mindless chatter about things that have already happened, but for the sake of starting somewhere I will just say this. There was lots for growing during the between time.

Growth is a funny thing because it is gradual and it seems to happen when I least expect it. Often times it is hard to discern where growth is even happening until it has already happened. But no matter how or when growth is perceived it is inevitable. It is one thing that I can always count on. Because if you are not growing you are slowly doing the opposite. So here is what I would like to pose to you ... what type of growth are you experiencing or have experienced in the past months. Are you growing.....

Just like a tree ... you as a person are either growing and flourishing or withering away and dying. One or the other is happening... not both... never both.  So which are you?

7 "But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD,
       whose confidence is in him.
 8 He will be like a tree planted by the water
       that sends out its roots by the stream.
       It does not fear when heat comes;
       its leaves are always green.
       It has no worries in a year of drought
       and never fails to bear fruit."
Jeremiah 17:7-8
