Frosted Blossoms

Well, last night we got our annual late frost. The nectarine and peach tress were blossoming but the frost got those. I love watching things bloom in the spring and I hated seeing those blossoms die instead of maturing into fruit, but I know things happen for a reason. For the fruit trees, the frost thinned out the many blossoms allowing the tree to focus its energy on fewer, but larger fruit.

Many times I've started things and God has sent a frost and killed those blossoms. It wasn't that the things I was doing was bad, it was just a thinning out process so that other things could grow and mature into bigger and better fruit for the Lord.

The thinning process isn't fun nor easy, but if you want a beautiful crop of large fruit it's necessary. Personally, I would rather have a few large, tasty pieces of fruit than small, wormy pieces.Photobucket

“...and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it, that it may bear more fruit.” John 15:2b

  1. Oh Peejers! What a beautiful thought! I want the blossoms in my life to grow into big tasty fruit, too, so I suppose I have to withstand the pruning, huh? Love this. Thank you for giving me something to think about today:) Love you girlfriend, so much!
