My Cup of Tea

31/03/2010 § 4 Comments

Today I walked around the house and took some quick pics of places and things that have been cold and dormant. After some labor of constructing…

clearing and raking…
turning of soil, planting of seeds…
 
trimming of thorns and pulling of weeds…

these barren places will be ready for life to spring forth! Then, I’ll have to keep it watered. Yep, maintenance. Not a strong point of mine. I am endeavoring to make this year, a year of change. Just like dirt starts out cracked, dry and lifeless but can be watered and revived to produce wonderful fruit, I am hoping my life will be like that this year.

I can not even begin to express how excited that makes my heart (not necessarily the watering part)! There’s nothing like good, honest labor and taking care of the blessings the Lord has given us. It’s so satisfying and the rewards are well worth waiting for and the effort put into them.

How do your gardens grow? Do you have patches of earth awakening and waiting for life to be given to them? Are you perfectly content with not being a ‘green thumb’?  What’s your ‘cup of tea’ when it comes to plants and gardening?
