Water the goodness in your heart!
We are in
which is one of many states in drought conditions. We have watered bushes, tomato plants, roses,
flowers, trees…..the plant kingdom around here is simply not very happy. You really see it with all the brown stalks
in the cornfields. Told somebody I’m
just going to plant cactus next year!
Anyway, as I rode my bike up to the house the other day, it occurred to
me that the weeds didn’t seem to mind the drought at all…..they are doing just
fine! Seems to me there’s a lesson in
that. When in drought times of your
life…..such as a divorce…..it is critical that you carefully water and nurture
the good plantings in your heart, because the weeds will grow freely if you
don’t. I pulled a bunch of weeds out of
the strawberry patch yesterday…..maybe you need to pull a few out of your
heart. Seems to me somebody once gave a
parable about the importance of tending the soil of your heart……..Mark 4
maybe? Just a thought.
