Cheering my Plant Babies Along...

Like the Momma proud of her babies
I am cheering the little plants in
my garden on to great things.

They may never grow large in stature
like the great hosta of yesterday's post,
but they will do their own growing and
part in the gardens at Hospitality Lane.

This little spot on the hillside has
been generously planted with a variety of
wildflower seeds. I am watching hopefully
that they make it and make this hill a wash
of color year after year.
It surely doesn't look like much right now,
but, I have the vision of what it can be.

God has that vision for us.

We are not what we will be.
Some of us are not the huge,
make a statement kind of people.
Most of us are the little plants
just quietly doing our parts in the
garden of life.

But Our Heavenly Father knows the plans
He has for us. He knows exactly how we
fit in to His Eternal Garden. He sees our
potential and He is cheering us on.

Better than that...He actively prunes,
waters and feeds us.

Don't you just love that!?!

Your post reminded me of a quote i read by Samuel Rutherford in The Loveliness of Christ...

"The Great Master Gardener, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, in a wonderful providence,with his own hand, planted me here where by his grace, in this part of his vineyard, i grow; and here i will abide till the great Master of the vineyard think it fit to transplant me."

I love that too Melissa!

I am glad that He prunes us and helps us to grow in beauty.
