Enjoy a Full Lifetime

May 13, 2019: Isaiah 65, 66; 2 Kings 21.

I opened the patio door wide enough to grab the Conica Spruce. I carefully carried it to the front of the house. I didn’t want dried needles all over the floor. I opened the front door and set it in the corner.

The spruce was a gift from my brother at Christmas. It was dormant but budded after a few weeks. Then the needles started falling off. I gave it extra water. I’m sure it is root bound.

I asked my friends for advice. They suggested it needed more light. I moved it in front of the biggest window. More needles fell. David took it out back near the patio door.

I kept the basket that came with it inside. There were two inches of water in it. I over-watered it. I decided it was safer outside.

It rained for four days straight!

I moved it near the front door because it faces south. It is my last hope.

It poured the day David planned to plant it. Then our attention was on the water pouring in the basement.

It had such a short life. Sigh.

Isaiah 65:20, “No more babies dying in the cradle, or old people who don’t enjoy a full lifetime; one-hundred birthdays will be considered normal – anything less will seem like a cheat.” The Message

I live my life as if I will live to be one hundred!
