Blue flowers grow in dry sand shaded by a rock

Psalm 89:1I will sing of your steadfast love, O LORD, forever;
with my mouth I will proclaim your faithfulness to all generations.

Faithfulness produces flowers in dry sand among hard rocks. Where will the seeds that these flowers produce grow? Will there be future generations?

Each day we hear dire news from the Gulf Coast; birds covered with oil, marshes invaded with oil, oil plumes affecting fish, tar balls on the beaches, businesses closing, … We ask what will be left for future generations?

In faith we push out flowers of songs and create seeds of hope, trusting the steadfast faithfulness of God.
