Snow Drop Promises

We have lived in our home for almost fifteen years. A previous owner must have planted a tiny white flower called Snow Drops. They are one of our first harbingers of spring. Now I happen to love winter and snow, but I am always amazed that we can have several inches of snow blanketing the ground and still have the snow drops push through and raise their faces to greet the day.

Today was a warm day, in the 60's which isn't typical for Pennsylvania in January. I decided to see if the snow drops were starting to make an appearance yet. Sure enough, they have already grown at least four inches and will soon have their sweet faces showing.

These flowers reminded me of the promises we have in Jesus. Snow drops promise that spring will soon be coming - sometimes it takes several months before that happens, but it always comes. We have the promise with Jesus that He will always be faithful to us, and that we can always depend upon Him. He will never let us down! Praise God!
