We Rocked Today

There is little that is more completely exhilarating than a family team project where everyone works together on a project and accomplishes something bigger. Today, we did that and the results are beautiful and will last. Even if the rocks give way over time, we have that unified bonding memory together. It is beautiful! God is so very good!!❤

New Thoughts on Carrots

Carrots are born of seeds, like every other vegetable. They are very like other root vegetables that spend their whole growth period in the dirt. Their leaves up above, however, set it apart from others. It’s leaves are lacy and delicate looking, quite lovely, if you’ve never considered them. How do you know when a carrot is ready for picking? Time gives you a pretty good idea but still never tells you concretely until you grab it’s gorgeous leaves and pull it up from the ground. How big it is and it’s shape and sweetness and depth of gorgeous orange depend on a number of factors: the condition of the soil, amount of sunshine, rain amount, rocks in the ground under it, proximity to other veggies, weeds, etc. It is a rather delicate vegetable, though you would never think so from how difficult it is to peel and get to the inside and then more difficult to cut through or crunch.

We are more like carrots than we think. We spend time under the influence of far too many tainted things, like the dirt that covers the carrot until maturity sets in. Some people fizzle out before maturity sets in and are never mature enough to be of benefit to anyone else. Some of us let rocks or difficult people or circumstances bend us out of shape, so we are wounded and battered, even when reaching maturity. Our strength of character and Spirit is due largely in response to our Spiritual nutrition, Bible reading and prayer walk, as the color of the carrot with the soil. How sweet we are to the kingdom of heaven and beneficial to those around us depends on all these things. But when it all comes together, there is little in the vegetable kingdom that are as sweet and healthy to the church. I want to be a good carrot. I want to be beneficial and not harmful to those around me. Don’t you?
