There are a lot of seasons — when God is planting, growing us, and harvesting. – Mari

Obviously the harvest is where we all want to be because we are enjoying the blessing of our hard work. – Mari

We can put our time, effort, and focus into something we want or that we think God ought to be doing, and it just feels like it is shriveling up and dying, but there is something right next to it that is doing just fine without our striving. – Lisa

In pruning, I am reminded of God’s grace and what he’s done on the cross. – Mari
