Praise God for the spider plant

the elegant drape of its variegated leaves,
tipped in tiny white flowers
and tasseled with new growth.

Praise God for my father,
whose hands still shaky from a stroke
sifted soil to pot the first of these plants
now nestled in my yard for many years.

Praise God for new growth
continuing to spring forth –
reminding me of constant love
and his ongoing life in You.
