SUPRISES IN GARDENING...


This little flower is one of the reasons I love gardening.  You come upon surprises...some beautiful, some unexpected!  Here is a sweet surprise - somehow a little seed grew in this harsh environment - hard cement - and bloomed for all to see!  All it needed was a tiny bit of soil to get going.  So many lessons while planting, pulling weeds and watering that remind me of scriptures and the Christian life.  I could have pulled that little flower and I will pull that other one - it's a redbud tree!  But I allowed it to stay and it did the unusual.

Lesson:  We need to expect the unusual from God and continue to water those in harsh environments.
