    As in any garden, it is necessary to keep the weeds at bay so that the plants have a chance to grow. The lesson I take away from this is to ask myself what type of weeds, the things that stop me from growing, need to be removed from my life. The conclusion I came to was the weed of negativity. So, I am in the process of eliminating relationships that are negative. This requires that I keep a constant vigil on the weeds that creep into my garden.

    The way in which I will find support and structure for my seeds to grow in my rule of life is through prayer. God is my center. Therefore I have set a time of day, early morning hours, to meditate. I start my day off with meditation therefore setting the tone for my day to start.

    Nothing in nature is perfect, neither are humans. Nature has predictably and cycles as does our lives. We know there should be celebratory milestones and times of sorrow and grief, there will be times of abundance and times of need. If we observe nature, we see how it withers and flourishes, rejuvenated and dies. Our lives are much the same, we must honor each phase and experience. The future will come and with it something new and different. Embracing the joy and the sorrow in life and holding on to the hope of the future mirrors the fallow and abundance of nature.

    I am visiting Florida and we recently went to Ft Myers Beach. My children and their partners and I had little goggles and were able to see some underwater life. We saw live starfish and sand dollars and crabs in their natural habitat. We were awestruck at these beautiful creations and at the beauty of the beach, its’ powdery white sand and gorgeous view.
    God is Good. Amen.
