The fig tree is blooming

I love my End Time banner, the bird flying. I took that photo of birds against a stormy sky. The shades of blue-to-gray seemed calming to me and the bird’s perfect silhouette was just precious.

In addition, it was uncluttered and allowed for easy reading of the blog title and title description, and didn’t compete with the text.

In a Georgia spring, there is a lot to look at. I often walk around the yard, looking at the burst of blossoms everywhere. I especially like the large fig tree in the back yard. It yields lots of figs in two or three harvests a year. Yay!

Fig trees and figs figure prominently in the bible. (Did you see what I did there?) I like this verse-

And he told them a parable: “Look at the fig tree, and all the trees. As soon as they come out in leaf, you see for yourselves and know that the summer is already near. So also, when you see these things taking place, you know that the kingdom of God is near.” (Luke 21:29-31)

When I see the fig tree blooming, I like to think that the rapture is near. I know the two aren’t literally linked, the verse is only a parable after all, but after living so many years in Maine and never even dreaming that actual fig trees could actually grow in the yard and actual figs can be picked, well, I just grin and enjoy thinking of the verse when I see the tree out there.

So I chose a fig tree banner just to change the blog a little. It’s been a few years. No. I don’t like change, but I force myself, lol. I hope you enjoy.
