My Garden Journey
Who would have ever thought that I would enjoy gardening? I killed every flower I ever purchased. I tried to grow a little herb garden in some pots on my front porch and they never produced. So when my lovely husband said, “I know I have made all these raised beds but I am just not going to have the time to keep it up so if we want a garden this year you are going to have to plant it, weed it, and pick it,” it struck fear in my little heart.
Then came doubting, "I don’t handle heat; I can’t grow anything," you know the usual stuff satan throws at us. Well, I didn’t handle the heat well and it may have taken me longer than usual to plant it, weed it, and pick it but I DID IT!!!!! And in the process every time I weeded God spoke to me about pulling out the weeds that were choking my relationship with Him and every time it rained I thanked God for providing for our garden instead of simply ignoring the blessings of rain. It was an amazing experience and I am excited about finally beginning our little homestead.
