My garden is planted & things are sprouting! okra, sunflowers, and marigolds, zuccini, yellow squash, cabbage, eggplant, beets, 6 tomato plants, and 1 green pepper, 1 yellow pepper, and 1 red pepper plant.
The garden will need to be hoed this weekend. It is work. But the joy I receive in watching things grow is worth it all. Radiation may/will probably make me extremely exhausted.
I may need some help. But I have accepted that because life moves on & we either get left behind for a while (which is okay) or we do the best we can to keep up (and sometimes with help).
Pastors can at times feel isolated even though we are all connect too.
I know that God has sent people in my life as well, that will reach out to me when I need help. And I the same. It is what we are all called to do as follower of Jesus. It can be difficult to accept help but in the larger scope of things, we find that we are all blessed in the process.
Today, I am not only thankful to watch my garden grow, but to have life and have it abundantly through Jesus.
This gives me strength. This gives me eternal hope.
My soul has been searching this spring and the Holy Spirit has taken my soul and refreshed it. Giving it new life. I am at peace with God.
