Tending the Garden

Today, after getting my daughter to my mom’s house for “grandma time”, I tended the garden. I picked the last of the cherry tomatoes, trimmed the lantana bushes, pulled out weeds and grass, watered everything, etc. I know thatif I let it go and did not prune the branches, the plants would not survive, they would destroy each other and bear no fruit. After the tending, the garden looks great and is much more effective and beautiful now.

God prunes us sometimes too. We are His beautiful work and we are made better by pruning off dead branches and trimming off defective or ineffectual parts of us that we just keep stupidly feeding. It is necessary. Always be thankful for such lessons because when finished, God looks at you with love in His eye (as I did with my garden) and said, “Much better, so beautiful!”😄❤
