April 30, 2010 Gardening
I was so enthused a couple of weeks ago - the garden was in! Yeah! So, I was musing out loud to my husband while making lunch...
"Wow, that was so easy - just plant the seeds and they will give us veggies!"
"Well, I mean, you have to go out and water."
"Well, yeah, and weed."
"And we did have to put in two years of backbreaking labor to break up the soil."
"Oh yeah, and we had to remember to compost our waste, turn it over, then wheel it over to the garden..."
"Oops - almost forgot... Chris had to work two springs setting up the infrastructure - fence, rabbit wire, electric wire for the deer."
"And we had to plan just the right place to put the garden. In the sun, in a protected area..."
This was starting to sound an awful lot like a spiritual journey...
"Yeah! I believe!!! It was so sudden! Now things are great!"
"Well, I mean, I still have to do daily devotions to keep my head straight."
"Well, yeah, and do daily maintenance when I mess up.. which I am unfortunately quite good at..."
"And I did go to bible studies, read books, talk with other people about their beliefs for several years.."
"Oh yeah, and I have to remember to do what is put in front of me - daily duties - in a manner giving glory.."
"Oops, almost forgot.. God spent about how many years setting up everything so that I came to this point in my life?"
"And He had to give me faith at just the right time, just the right manner for me."
Yep, sounds a lot like that....
