Is It Dead?

Kimberism: “Prune-prune businesses, products, activities, people. Do it annually. ” Donald Rumsfeld “Is it dead?” was the question that popped into my head, somehow acknowledging a similar camaraderie with the bare branches on a sparse looking tree? Then I heard in my spirit, “Its important to know the times and the seasons.” Years ago my bedroom window overlooked the corner where two streets met.

However, ever last pedal on my Bougainvillea was scattered across our yard. How well do you come through the powerful storms in your life? Many storms in my life have knocked me on my rear and left me with my feet flailing over my head.

Although you may feel akin to a bare Bougainvillea after harsh winds, the winds may in fact be priming you for rapid growth and fruitfulness. When life deals you a harsh hand and you feel supremely wind-blown, remember that every flourishing garden endured a season of pruning at one time or another. Gird up your fortitude, get back on your feet and watch for new growth!
