    AMEN! Lovely acorns ready to be the seeds that become the huge and lovely trees. How often do we really realize how this truly comes to pass. And if those small seeds can become big famous elements, how much of the seed we plant in other lives can do the same thing… or the seed the Lord plants in our lives and we become solid, strong, and lovely IN Him and SHARING Him and planting more and more seed.
