Blooming promises

We were standing on them, the little precursors of a beautiful flower when I looked down and realized what was underfoot. My gardening heart leaped for joy when I seen these crocus leaves and I thought to myself how many precursors of things I’ve prayed for are already here in plain sight but yet I’ve overlooked them because the actual “flower” isn’t visible yet.

Like that quote that says something like I remember the times I prayed for what I have now…..these little leaves reminded me that the evidence of answered prayers are all around, it just might not be the complete answer yet. Don’t take for granted the “leaves” of your prayers. Those are just as important as the actual bloom. And where there are leaves there will usually be a bloom to follow. 🌱🌷
