God’s Blessings

I journeyed to our garden today knowing exactly what I would find and yet was quite surprised. I expected to find the plants we planted to be growing, but wow have they grown with the spring weather we have had! I expected to have some weeds and I was right. The weeds aren’t hard to pull, but there are so many tiny ones it doesn’t seem you can get them all. The next day I am reminded that I did not get all of them as the weeds begin to grow again.

Then I looked next to and over the weeds and realized that the tomato
bushes didn’t seem bothered and continued producing fruit, even before July arrived. All of our tomato plants have survived and even flourished
with a multitude of fruit waiting to ripen. The peppers are setting on. The
herb plants are already quite strong and healthy making me think of
recipes that all of this could create.

I couldn’t help but think God has this all under control. The planting and caring is ours, but the wonder of growth and celebration of harvest is wonderful to share with the one who provides in the first place.

What an amazing way to look at our life as people, as families, as a church. No matter what we plan, our harvest will be fruitful in love, family, and faith. Wait, this harvest coming is ours as far as we have a part in it, but the God who creates, redeems, reconciles, and forgives must have a great table waiting for our recipes.

Enjoy the gardening. Enjoy the summertime. Enjoy the blessings found everywhere. Let us bring our recipes together sharing our stories, our special treats, and the harvest from garden and God’s kingdom as we grow together.

In Ministry Together,
Pastor Craig
