These Rose of Sharon are outside my kitchen window. In early spring, when others are blossoming, there’s no sign of life and if I judged their growth at that point, I’d wonder if there was any life in them. It’s not visible in comparison with the others. But then, in the right time for them, they bloom bold and beautiful. How important to wait for God’s timing and not judge or compare or try to force growth markers on myself or others. I’m grateful He does things ‘In due season” and “the fulfillment of time”.
