Be encouraged! It is so easy to hold a grudge. To stay angry and not put the effort in. I love my house plants and let me tell you they grow! There is effort in their care. My kids call them my babies. I can take a seed and bam 6 months later it is a small tree. I hope my children see this time and effort and apply it in other areas of their lives ( A Momma needs to get creative when ministering to her young) I relearn daily to have soft soil. How can we grow anything worth while in hard stubborn ground. I take the time and effort in many areas of my life sometimes I am spread thin. But I want my family to know Jesus. I am saved and I am grateful. I will spend my days spreading the good word of His love and what The Lord has done in my life. At the end of my time in this earthly body that people say she emanated grace.
A note: I have a sister Susan whom I love with all my heart and I have softened my soil to her. I pray daily that She will know the Lord and that he would work a miracle in her life and her soils will soften. There has not been one word spoken to me in 4 years. Love out loud and pray hard!
