weeds in my garden







After digging in the dirt and pulling weeds and a lot of sweating, our garden looks pretty good.  I've always enjoyed beautiful flower beds and the wonderful smell of flowers in bloom....but, it's a love hate relationship!  What I do not enjoy is dirt under my fingernails, rough hands and an achy back.  It is very difficult to have one without the other.


Walking with Jesus and being His disciple is like that.  Constant work and tending to, trying to keep the flowers in bloom and the weeds out.  Weeds like anger, jealousy, laziness, deceiving myself, and planting instead good things like love, joy, peace, and practicing longsuffering toward everyone, and
praising God with thanksgiving.
It is so worth the effort!  Watching God bless your work, tenderly watering and shining down on your
life and your loved ones.
Do not faint under the pressure dear one.  Keep up the good fight, don't quit, don't give in, the rewards far out way the struggle.


Galatians 6:5
For every man shall bear his own burden.
Galatians 6:6
Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.
Galatians 6:7
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
Galatians 6:8
For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
Galatians 6:9
And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
 (KJV)

I believe God's vision for Mothers is to love....  Agape Love.  Life giving love that is born from a heart that gives.  She puts her children and others at a high priority.  It doesn't mean she's perfect.  If that were the criteria there would be no examples.  Some people were given  Mothers who had or have this kind of love.  A Mother who waits until everyone else has a full plate before she eats, a Mother who does everything she knows to do to bring us a good life.  As I reflect,  my Mother was far from perfect.....as a matter of fact, I didn't really feel love from her until after my Father died and our first son was born.  But listen, I also realize she gav
