Of Bees and Evangelization
The bees are now ensconced in their hives, humming happily and trying to free their queens. Two more hives complete; zero bee stings.
A wee observation: remember the old adage that sometimes a drowning man can fight until both he and the rescuer drown? There are bees who will do as the proverbial drowning man; you brush them away from the edge to prevent crushing and they either fly back onto that ledge or get mad and dive bomb you.
Sometimes evangelization is like that. When we come across individuals who are drowning in their world of self-gratification, they get angry when anyone offers them a lifeline. Lose not heart nor hope, Dear Ones; for so they also treated The Master who died for us.
The pollen is thick on the cars but the glass is half full: we see this as a good sign of honey harvests to come. Fruit trees are in full bloom with more trees budding out daily. Praise be to God for our Salvation!
That's me away to the garden.
