Be Like My Veggies

   One of the awesome things about moving into this great little house is that I was able to plant a veggie garden. Now, I don't want to toot my own horn or anything....But... Toot Toot! I am growing stuff like crazy! Two Zucchini plants, Tomatoes, Bell Peppers, Basil, Thyme, Rosemary, Chives, and Cilantro. I have eaten some of each herb and tomatoes thus far, the Zucchinis aren't quite ready. Yesterday morning as I was watering I realized something. That no matter how crazy our day is I will always find time to water my Veggies twice a day, but I can't say the same for watering my soul with The Living Water.
  I can go weeks without picking up my Bible and I will just blame it on the craziness of life. Why is the growth of my soul not as important to me as the growth of my Veggies? Seems a little off balance to me. I am searching for new ways to stay motivated. Praying that God will put in me a newness of who He is. An excitement about what He is going to show me.
   And as I pursue that newness from Him, I will water those Veggies of mine and look at them as a picture of my Spiritual growth to come. Can't wait. I pray that God would put in you a freshness and new desire to seek Him out.

Grace and Peace

love the blog. this got me thinking of my own walk, and the "watering" I've lacked as of late. this really encourages me to know I'm not alone in my dryness, or my eagerness to be watered. you and danielsan are a blessing to me and i always feel encouraged when i talk to you guys. i miss you guys alot!


Thanks for checking out my blog. The writings found on these pages are just sincere thoughts, questions, and feelings I have about life, God, and banana slugs.
