A Gardening Thought This Morning

Ethan and I stopped outside to visit the plants this morning. It just brings peace and a sense of "rightness" to see wholesome plants grow. If you struggle with stress in life, I suggest you plant a garden and watch things grow. That's what the Lord told the Israelites to do in Jeremiah 29!

5 ‘Build houses and live in them; and plant gardens and eat their produce. 6 Take wives and become the fathers of sons and daughters, and take wives for your sons and give your daughters to husbands, that they may bear sons and daughters; and multiply there and do not decrease. 7 Seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf; for in its welfare you will have welfare.’
