I believe God tends a secret garden and some of His favorites are hidden there.
He joyfully shapes and prunes their fresh buds and fragrant leaves.
The secret garden is lush, filled with vibrant colors and saturated hues,
They will take the world by surprise when He chooses to show them off.
For now, He delights in their hiddenness.
For although the world celebrates what is proven – a colorful show of petals plainly seen with the naked eye,
God is a Gardener who revels in the potential where soil has met seed to begin something astonishingly lovely. He holds new buds close for now, but will one day unfurl them in full bloom.
