green

...reminds me of new life

the bright, warm sun on my face emerging from the dead of winter

reminds me of new life

melting snow revealing the naked grass

reminds me of new life

joy in the presence of trouble

reminds me of new life

sitting quietly in prayer - laid bare before my Jesus

reminds me of new life

men, scarred by past, lingering woundedness, learning a love for scripture

reminds me of new life

second and third and fourth chances

reminds me of new life

transformation

reminds me of new life

fierce, righteous, and seemingly reckless living

reminds me of new life

rest...sabbath

reminds me of new life

jesus

reminds me of new life

...is new life

today i am resting...resting in this new life...resting in the assurance of His transformation...resting in the fullness of his presence...resting from the good work...

...just...

...resting.

Wow Brad! I just found your blog off your sister's blog & find myself captivated & encouraged by your writing. I have been hearing about the wonderful things you guys are doing down there at the Boiler Room. Keep going for Jesus! And be encouraged! He is well pleased with you!
