I enjoy planting flowers each Spring
in pots, some small and some larger.
I love color and try to plant as many
as I can care for.
Each morning I go out to water them.
Taking care of them is a chore but one
that has it's rewards, but some not so
You see I have a squirrel that lives in a
tree in my yard. I believe it's this pesky
little animal that digs in my flower pots
and uproots the plants.
It has even eaten the flowers off the moss rose
(the last pot on bottom row).
I have also seen several holes in the ground.
It could be a chipmunk or both that digs up
I am reminded of another pest in my life.
As hard as I try to do good and let my love show,
there's this thing that we all have, it's called
"sin nature". We're all born with it.
It's the things we do or say that "uproots" our
testimony. Unkind words or actions can uproot
all the good we've done.
Today as I water my flowers, I'll be
reminded to water the seeds in my life with words of kindness and actions with good deeds. I will try my best to treat others the way I wish to be treated.
"My little children, let us not love in word
or tongue, but in deed and in truth."
