Same time last year, the same thing happened.
I thinned the proverbial garden of weeds, left the garden to heal, then watched as the new year welcomed fresh growth. So now, I am thinning the garden once again... I know that there will be rough patches... but I have faith that something new will come to bloom in the empty spaces.
What could have I done differently this year? I should have been more diligent in fertilizing new ground. I should not have allowed any weeds to grow back in my garden. I should have spent more time concentrating on consistent, daily care rather than dreaming about the harvest.
It all starts with a seed, but that seed needs roots before it can grow. Lord, help me grow roots so that I may gain strength.
