When the Grass Turns Green

When I was a little girl, I asked my mom and dad when my birthday was, and my dad said, “In the spring, when the grass turns green.” How I looked forward to spring and the renewed color of the grass in our yard and pastures!

Our heavenly Father gives us hope with a picture of grass, but one that comes with an eternal promise. He makes me to lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still watersI shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever (Psalm 23:2, 6). The certain hope of heaven, won for us by our risen Redeemer, is for all!
