|I just finally gave away my 14lb bowling ball |
from high school. I can't bowl at all now,
let alone with that thing!
The pastor used the analogy, "bloom where you're planted." It made me think of all of my "volunteer" plants that somehow end up in my garden, scattered by wind or animal. These are plants that often end up in a place that is not exactly ideal for optimum growth, but do you know what they do? They make the best of the resources available to them, and grow into beautiful flowers or vegetables that add life to my garden and bring joy to me -- even though they may not be the largest blooms or the hardiest plants.
|I found these snap dragons randomly|
growing in my front yard last year. Must've
been a gift from a bird!

Please also read this post from my friend, Kelly -- she beautifully portrays a lesson that God has been teaching me over this past year.
