If I ever wrote myself into a story I would have to live in a house with a lilac bush outside our bedroom window so the evening breeze would carry the scent of lilac into the room as I say goodnight to the Lord and drift into sleep.
It is springtime now and I am thinking about things like that. This is our first spring in our house here in Hinsdale. I’ve been away some. The other morning was a glorious, sunny, spring morning. I was getting dressed and Lois opened the blinds. The sun shone in. The pines were noisy with birdsongs. To my delight, just below or second-floor bedroom window, at the corner of the stone patio was lilac bush in full flower.
A few years ago someone took the time to plant a lilac bush at the corner of the patio, just under our bedroom window. This spring it is ours to enjoy. It is my goal in life to nudge everyone I meet a little closer to the Lord Jesus, to lead as many to Christ as I can and spend my life obeying the commands of Christ and teaching others to do the same. Today I would like to plant some things and get some things started that will bring fragrance and beauty into the lives of others for years to come.

Amen! That’s the only way to live!

We love lilacs too. My birthday is in May, and every year my mother had me stand in front of a lilac bush for my birthday picture. :o) Moms are that way. (I am now, too, with three lilac bushes to take pictures of.)
Last night we listened to your “Grand Master Key” sermon. It blessed and challenged all of us, from the little guys to Mom and Dad. Several months ago we heard a sermon that “warned” against letting unbelievers know God loved them until they realized how sinful they were. It rubbed me the wrong way because it was God’s love that changed my life and made me run to Him. When I dwell on sinful me, I am more inclined to draw into myself and want to be alone in my miserable state. I can remember the day I was made aware of God’s love for me personally, just as I was, a rebel, with nothing to offer Him… December 1, 2000! Loving Him back was all I had to do, and my life changed without having to try so hard (and fail anyway).
Praise God, and thank you for your message.
