Another Lesson In My Garden

Ya know as I walked out in my backyard a few minutes ago I couldn’t help but to get a little bit emotional. Y’all know my love and passion for gardening right? And how I was truly sad when I had to put down my shovel and gardening gloves while I was healing… And I didn’t water it I didn’t pull weeds, I just had to let it die…And then I shared with you when my lawn guy came on Monday and he told me that he liked my peppers that were growing in the garden. And how I was so excited because I just knew there was nothing but dead plants, weeds, and of course the typical lizards in Florida…And on Tuesday when he told me that my peppers were pretty I ran outside and I saw some beautiful yes small a little miss formed misshapen red and green bell peppers! How could this be I thought to myself I didn’t water it I couldn’t nurture it I couldn’t take care of it the way that my skills and experience had allowed me for so long. And I thought it was hopeless.Never giving up the idea of finally in Florida having another beautiful abundant harvest, I just told myself it’ll be OK and once I’m fully healed I will be able to chill out my garden area and rebuild… You know build back better 😂 So this evening when I walked outside to water my beautiful tropical plant and to start watering my peppers again I noticed even more vibrant colors in the garden, I noticed that there were not two or three red bell peppers but they were also green bell peppers as well! My heart skipped a beat and I truly got excited again I was so happy I could have shed a tear. And then I noticed another fruit, a tomato growing on a vine that was yellow, withered and I thought was dead but I don’t know there was life…And because I wanted to nurture my garden back to life back to health again, I decided that the one pepper plant that was leaning over and yet still growing much to my surprise it was still thriving even though it had been knocked down trampled on neglected abused it still was producing fruit…Even though these bell peppers have obstacles, and challenges, and bad things and situations around them there’s still something within that seed, within that vine, within that branch that is attached to the much-needed nutrients the dirt the sun the water even when it’s not being watered properly.Precious hearts let this story encourage you today, that no matter what obstacle and situation it may look like, no matter what you are going through in this hour in this moment, I need you to believe and have faith that you will be OK. All hope is not lost my friend it is just a change in seasons many blessings be encouraged
