"I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit, because without me you can do nothing." - John 15:5
There were a few pieces of this vinca vine in a floral arrangement that we received seven years ago. We planted it outside to see if it would grow. And boy did it grow! It has spread plentifully to create a nice ground cover under a shady tree.
Each leaf and branch trails back, in some circuitous manner, building upon itself, to the original vine. Staying connected, feeding off of the master, it should live forever.
O God, let me always stay connected to you as you feed me with the food needed to sustain me in body, mind and soul. Amen.
