I love this time of the year when the trees are finally in full bloom. Ahhh…, finally! The green branches, with their beautiful blooms, sway in the breeze and they speak to my heart, “I was made for green.”
I feel renewed with the turning of the season. There is a sense of this is how it was supposed to be. The trees were made for green and so were we. I could be wrong but when God placed man in the Garden of Eden I don’t think there were any winters or bad weather there (just my opinion, but check out Adam and Eve’s clothing attire, or lack thereof). I don’t think the trees were to ever be bare. I don’t think the branches were to ever cease having fruit sprout from them. I think paradise was just that, a never-ending green that sings to the symphony of one’s heart that they are where God placed them.
There’s a lot of ugliness we see in this world. Once, it was not so. Our original design was not to live in an environment of sin and decay. It was not designed to exist with dead and dreary things. It was designed to behold the beauty of God through His creation. We were designed to live in God’s best! We were made for so much more!
In this life, we have to deal with what the world has become now. But, oh, that day is coming where we shall once again know the pleasures of paradise. Where we once again will enjoy the best of God’s design. I personally can’t wait because I was made for green 🙂
