Green Grass Church

Be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the LORD is good, His mercy is everlasting, and His truth endureth to all generations.        Psalms 100:4

While painting this church…

I could see blades of green grass all around it…

and when it came time to focus on the door…

the scripture above came to mind…

and a green leaf settled quietly within its entryway!

Why a green leaf I asked?

And I heard a whisper say…

The purpose of a leaf

is to take in the light

(truth)

of the sun

(Jesus)

And use its energy

(power over darkness)

To process the water

(God’s word)

supplied from the ground

(the current circumstance)

together

with the carbon dioxide from the air…

(His Holy Spirit)

to provide food for the plant.

(to exchange our waste and exhaust & convert it to life in this moment)

Yes…

It’s ok… to go back and reread it!

I did so many times to let it soak deep within…

This process?

Photosynthesis…

Photo… using light

Synthesis… making something new

(He shines light on the darkness to make all things new)

Life emerges when blessings are counted…

Grass turns green

beneath my feet

when the blades around me

are cherished and noted as sweet.

Even doors turn green

opening wide

filled with life…

to places

leading up high…

Church

has those green leaf doors.

Friends

harboring that encouraging Barnabas spirit within

have those leaves…

and oh so many more green leaf invitations

surface

throughout each day!

All things

become life giving

when I start looking for these

green moments within my world…

May we grasp each blade of green

that comes our way today!

In Jesus

mighty name,

AMEN!
