Today was a pulpit supply day for me and the scripture was from John 20; it was the story of "doubting" Thomas, the man who wanted to see in order to believe.
After I gave my message (about doubt being healthy and natural and necessary), we opened up to Moments of Gratitude and I mentioned that I'd see tulip leaves coming out of the ground under my front window.
"I'd have to see that to believe it," someone in the congregation called out.
So here is the proof, Before and After I did the clean up that should have been done last fall.
And look who overwintered in the garden! Frog Prince, you survived being buried under a massive snowdrift. I don't think my roses fared as well.
