After sunrise this morning, I was able to harvest bunches of red, sweet grapes from my vine. Last year the birds and insects competed with me, but today was a fruitful harvest and the grapes are delicious.
Here’s a picture of my grape vine. This area is my prayer garden.
A few years ago, I mentioned to my husband that I would love a prayer garden in this little section where I can sit and have my morning devotions. He wasted no time and began to build the trellis. I think this is what husbandry means (smile!) Every year the vine and rose bushes spread out becoming plusher. While I was out there today, I was praying for my kids on the west coast. They’re flying to the east coast for a family reunion and this will be Susanna’s first flight experience! This grandma was praying for all the details for this all-day flight.
I enjoy quiet mornings and I love to pray. I’m remembering John 15:5 that says: “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” I think that’s a great verse for my prayer garden. If you need prayer today, I’d love to pray for you. Leave a comment or write me an email and I’ll pray!
