About six years ago I was with a group reflecting on chapter 15 in John's Gospel where Jesus says that we will be pruned so that we will bear more fruit. I told them that my life was going so smoothly that I wondered how I was being pruned. Someone said that you can't prune old trees because they may not bounce back. So I thought maybe God didn't expect much more growth from me and was going to let me coast into my death.
December's heart attack and open heart surgery was a clear signal that God isn't finished with me yet, that I needed pruning and will probably need more. Love Who love us, thank You.
