The Garden and the Vine

As I was turning up the winding road that leads to Bearfoot Ranch, a van for a lawn service turned heading up the road in front of me. The beautiful advertising on the side of the van read, Vines Gardening...

That really caught my attention because my focus has been on God tending to us as a garden. How appropriate to see this van before our graduation. Each lady who has been discipled for a year, turning the corner from a life of stripping, prostitution and often times homeless.    

John 15:1 -8 “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener.  He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.  You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you.  Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me."

What a rich reminder as we celebrated our ladies graduating. I can take a deep sigh of relief knowing they are connected to the vine.  Jesus is the only answer! He who who gives life and tends to their every need.
