I really related today to my irises that I was working in. Irises are basically impossible to kill & can grow anywhere. They can be uprooted and replanted just about anywhere. Within a couple of years they will have bloomed just as beautiful as before. They also multiply like crazy. Occasionally, you have to dig them up, pull them apart from the other irises around them, trim off their feet (extra bulb that they don't need anymore) & replant them all alone away from the other irises.
You see where I'm going with this, right? :-) I am God's iris. At this point in my growth, He knows that I needed to be uprooted, pruned & set apart in order to keep blooming. (Audible sigh) And even though I don't really like any of that process, I know that God always has my best in mind.
(Side note: Jason is reading his letter of resignation to our church tomorrow. No more secrets. Posting this blog to FB. Ahhh!)
