Planting seeds

I've never been much of a farmer or gardener! In fact, I can say that again. I've never been much...

Anyway, I love plants, I love flowers, I love green growing things especially this year with the dry and dying grass and plants! We realize how much we love these things when the water doesn't arrive to keep them beautiful. I digress, but it is so true!

I love all these things as long as I am not the one tending to them. I don't like dirt. I admit it. I don't like dirt under my nails, or on me period so it makes this difficult for me to achieve. One must be willing to dig, sweat, and work the ground to watch these beautiful things grow! It's not my gift, but I love them.

Upon arriving at the words this morning in Mark 4:14 ~ The farmer plants seed by taking God's word to others. I realized that I am a farmer. I love to share God's Word. I love to talk about God's Word. I love to learn about God's Word. I love to study God's Word. I love God's Word! I'm a farmer!!!! AT LAST, I get to watch something grow and it is so true! Through the Bible studies I love watching a woman's face get excited when she begins to just wet her appetite for more and then more of God's Word. The light has it begins to shine through her eyes with wonder and awe that she knows that The One True God sees her and loves her! I love to plant a seed and watch God do the work!

Thank you God for allowing me to be a farmer!

Sweet blessings,
