Keys in the Snow - February 14, 2006

"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." Galatians 6:9

My husband and I had a real treat recently when our friend, Michele, invited us to spend a few days in their home in the mountains. Ben was thrilled to have an opportunity to get out his skis and head for the slopes. I, too, so much enjoyed the R & R in a place so very different from our home in south Florida.

Off the back wood deck of the house, there was a large iron antique key. It occurred to me that keys in the snow are like seeds buried underground in winter; some big, some smaller. The seeds aren't just lying there doing nothing. They are building energy, while resting, to germinate and sprout. And when the inactivity of a winter season is over, spring gets underway. Pretty soon, what's going on is visible to OUR eyes. A tiny green blade pokes through, and we're on the way.

The dream God has crafted just for you might be your seed. Perhaps it is still buried deep underneath a thick layer of snow. The blanket of insulation can protect it while preparation is happening. God gave you the dream. He takes care to let nothing happen to it.

Hopefully, I can remember not to throw in the towel, but to hang in there. There's a plan for those "keys" in the snow. Really.
