On Earth Day (Apr. 22) 2016, we got a free pine seedling when we ordered a pizza from Papa John’s for three of our grandchildren who were spending the night with us.  The next day we planted “Lolly,” a loblolly pine, in our front yard.

We celebrated Lolly’s first birthday this year.  From a 13-inch seedling, she has more than doubled in size, now measuring 28 inches tall.

Not only has she grown in height, but she is vibrant and healthy.  I’ve been told she can grow up to two feet a year and may eventually be 90 feet tall.

All we did was plant her.  God gives the growth.  It’s the same when we plant a church.  Paul wrote of the church at Corinth, “I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God made it grow” (1 Cor. 3:6)  

What have you planted lately?   What has your church planted lately?

Glad we planted that tree,
David Williams
