My Plumcot now grows at an unprecedented rate. It has branches. Soon, I’ll move this tree to the counter because it’s too tall for the window.
In the Spring, I’ll move the tree outdoors where it belongs. I cannot wait to taste the delicious fruit it will one day bear.
While stuck indoors during the COVID-19 pandemic, I think about how we’re all also growing, although perhaps in imperceptible ways. We’re internally shooting upwards to the Lord and putting down strong roots while potted here. My friend recently asked me what story I would want tell in the future about my time during this isolation and fear. I would want to tell the story of growth and fruitfulness to come because I learned to spend more time with God, trust Him more, and listen to Him more.
