All my fruit trees are pruned! A two day event at my house. Now for a twig burning party!
It’s always a relief to get done, but I love doing it. I am always reminded of the parables in the New Testament when pruning. I’m cutting off the old and preparing for the new life to come in the spring. I am inspired by Gods creation, if you want to get to know an intimate loving God, spend some time in the garden.
I’m thinking lately about why I garden. Not very many people see my yard and all I do, but one of the main reasons to work hard in my property is to have that opportunity to spend time with Jesus. When I have my doubts in my faith with God, somehow working the soil grounds me, brings me back to the roots. I don’t believe God is interested in accomplishment. There’s a lot we can do in the name of God. But spending time, hanging out with your friend. That’s what I believe Jesus wants. Relationship, Quality Time.
All else is meaningless.
That makes sense to my anyhow…
