Who Plants a Seed..... Inspiration Avenue Challenge: HOPE

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
Hebrews 11:1 (NIV)


"The Between Time", by Judy Goddard


Who plants a seed beneath the sod,
and waits to see,
believes in God.
attributed to GK Chesterton

When I plant a seed, I hope it will grow. When I watch for it to grow I have faith that it will grow. Although I do not see the seed open , I am certain life is there.

There are lots of things in life like that.

Can you think of any?

I'm so happy you all like my painting! I had it listed as a note card for a while but none sold. So now I just use them for myself.

Can't wait to see what the next challenge is!

I love the sunflower, but I love more.. the sky behind it and your colors. Sunsets are today's blessing and the Hope for tomorrow. Really nice work!
