A Year of Abundance

I am hopeful that 2013 would be a year of fruitfulness and abundance. So far, there have been signs....

Take the two plum trees coming over into our backyard from the neighbour's garden, for instance.

I haven't seen a harvest as big as this year's!

Enough for some friends to come help us pick and take home to either eat them fresh or to turn into plum jam.

Then there's the pot plant hanging near the front door of our house.

Every summer, it produces pink plastic-like flowers that hang down.

The first summer after we had bought it, there were only two flowers. This year, there are fifteen of them. I can't remember there being so many last year.

A year of fruitfulness and abundance, oh, yes, that would be a wonderful blessing indeed!

"How precious is your loving-kindness, O God! Therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of your wings. They are abundantly satisfied with the fullness of your house, and you give them drink from the river of your pleasures. For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light."
