I wake to the loud buzzing sound and over I roll. Off goes the alarm, “six-thirty already?” To the shower now, last night was just a dream. What a beautiful spring day I can hear the birds singing and the sun streaming through the broken blinds. Dressed and ready for the day the realtor is coming at noon and I must clean up this mess. Down the stairs I go unusually cheerful given my circumstances. I decide to make breakfast for once instead of toast. I get the juice poured and the eggs cooked. I set my place at the table and sit down. I say a prayer of blessing and look up out my window. The sun is shining and something catches my eye. I move to the window and to my astonishment I see tiny little buds all over my tree. I run outside and look up “that tree isn’t dead it was just dormant. I’m finally going to have apples!” I can’t stop crying and laughing at the same time and for some reason I feel hope again. If God can make this tree come back to life maybe he can do that for me as well. In my mind I wonder what John would say if he saw this tree.
