And really, isn’t life a lot like this? We think we know what to expect – from an encounter, a meeting, or some project we take on. But, just like the garden, life is full of surprises. The Holy Spirit is full of surprises! The thing about the Holy Spirit and surprises is that we need to be open to them. If we’re not looking, not paying attention, we can miss them.
This month, I invite you to be on the lookout. The Holy Spirit is abroad in the world, shaking up life on a regular basis. You never know where you’ll find a peony or conversation that will knock your sox off.
