Wisdom Wednesday: Lessons from Plants

Just a quick post today, folks. Mostly links.

Second only to autumn, spring is one of my favorite times of the year. And I'm not sure why this year, but for whatever reason, I keep coming across others' blog posts that reveal how God teaches us through His creation. (Wowee, did He include a huge reminder that we are not in control, when the thunderstorms hit middle Tennessee this past weekend, storms which led to massive amounts of flooding -- of historic proportions!) And probably not coincidentally, He's also used children -- our own growing ones (well, others' kids, not mine) to point out these nuggets of truth to adults.

Here are some of my favorite posts:

* This Is How We Grow - Pastor Pete Wilson describes what Gage and tomato plants taught him about the role of prayer in our growth.

* Ellie and the Weeds - Angie Smith and her daughter Ellie tackle the weeds and learn about God's work in our lives.

* Tree of Mystery - This one is another from Angie Smith about God's using her daughter Ellie to reveal deep truth. Ellie shows us something about true beauty. (Warning: You might need a hanky for this one.)
