New Year's Day I woke up to birds singing. I enjoyed hearing them, so I decided to go outside and sit in the sun.
When I did, I saw there were a number of baby birds flying from tree to tree in my yard and the neighbors too. I was mesmerized.
I watched in awe, honored my home was chosen again for birds to nest and give birth to their babies. A sign of fruitfulness. This time there were at least twice as many birdies flying around.
My eyes fell on one bird sitting on a branch who jumped to another branch. Its movement was quick. The branch seemed wobbly, yet it held strong, and the bird sat confidently.
Immediately, I thought of God's Word: "I am the vine you are the branch." (John 15:5)
As I saw two birds frolic in the sky, the Holy Spirit reminded me: “Look how your Heavenly Father takes care of the birds in the air. How much more will he take care of you?” (Matt 6:26)
I was warmed by the Son. I know my God has been listening, guiding, and was comforting me to say, “You’re alright. I’m with you. I’m taking care of you.”
I felt immediately the strength of Habakkuk 2:3. “Though it tarries, wait for it; it does not tarry.”
That scripture always sounded like an oxymoron… like why would you say its tarrying and then tell me its not tarrying?
Real life is a teacher.

2023 felt like a year of weariness. Nevertheless, I am encouraged today, the work done before has not been in vain. God is with me. God is still maturing me and LuvEnlightens.
I can now boldly declare LuvEnlightens is a ministry. I share Christ in everything. We are a social enterprise for Christ. I love the teachings of the Bible. It teaches me how to live.
