What do watermelon, seed catalogs, petunias, green beans, zinnias, and dandelions have in common? The ability to teach life lessons in a way you never would have imagined, that’s what! “Jesus and Zinnias Make Me Smile” is a collection of memories from gardens past, the people whose love, generosity, and mentoring inspired me to put my God-given green thumbs in the dirt, and the life lessons God saw fit to teach me in the midst of his creative genius. Smiling, laughing, sighing, and crying–you will experience them all as you get to know yourself and God better.
What better way can you think of to start off 2021 than with a great book? And if you want a book that will help you develop a deeper and more meaningful relationship with God “Through the Eyes of a Shepherd” should be #1 on your lest. “Through the Eyes of a Shepherd” is a devotional book reminding us that being called God’s sheep is a compliment…not an insult. Each brief story shared by shepherd and author, Darla Noble, is a reminder of just how blessed we are to be cared for by the Good Shepherd and the assurance that he is always there; listening, watching, providing, and loving. “Through the Eyes of a Shepherd” is an excellent resource for personal or group devotions, sermon illustrations, communion meditations, and children’s lessons.

Do you desire to encounter Jesus?
When we “encounter” something, we are coming face-to-face with it.
In Luke 24, we see an interesting encounter between the resurrected Jesus and two of his followers as they were walking from Jerusalem to the town of Emmaus. Luke tells us that “Jesus himself suddenly came and began walking with them” (Luke 24:15).
By the end of this encounter, these two travelers were left amazed as they realized they had been with Jesus himself, “Didn’t our hearts burn within us as he talked with us on the road and explained the Scriptures to us?” (Luke 24:32)
It’s my hope that over these next twenty-one days, we’ll notice our own hearts burning within us as we walk with Jesus. Perhaps we’ll find ourselves having a deeper desire to draw closer to the Son as we encounter Him in unexpected ways.
