Lessons from the Garden



I planted some wild flowers last year – that was cool. This year there were some plants growing in the flower bed which I thought just had to be weeds. I was “this close” to pulling them, but didn’t. Now they are blooming with a beautiful, fragrant purple flower. Lesson for life: Do not be too quick to consider someone worthless or a “throw away” as they may blossom into a blessing for your life.

I was weeding today and noticed that the large weeds were the easier to pull than the small ones and there were so many more of the little ones. Lesson for life: It can often be the little things that cause us the most grief and work in our lives. Take care of the “little things”.
