O give thanks to the Lord of lords, for God’s steadfast love endures forever; who alone does great wonders. Psalm 136:3-4 

A friend sent me a beautiful flower arrangement in a loving gesture of kindness. It was the prettiest bouquet to grace my kitchen table! In the center of the bouquet, this lone green puff ball sans bloom served as an accent.  

The following morning this pretty, red bloom greeted me from the center of the green puff ball! What a wonder of nature! I was delighted that this accent plant produced a surprising bloom and snapped this photo. 

This unexpected bloom reminded me of the wonder of the Lord who constantly surprises us with new possibilities. Even in the hardest of times which we face, we are called to give thanks to the Lord whose steadfast love endures forever.  

God is still working great wonders among us; we must only listen and look with eyes of faith. Desert Cross is looking and listening in these days of adversity. Indeed, watch for the great wonders God is working in and amongst us. Continue to pray and meditate: 

O God, you have called your servants to ventures of which we cannot see the ending, by paths yet untrodden, through perils unknown. Give us faith to go out with good courage, not knowing where we go, but only that your hand is leading us and your love supporting us through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

In wonder, Pastor Andrea
