    My relationship with God has some battle scars at the moment. Truth be told, as impressive as plants are and all that, I'm more preoccupied about the miracle of human development.

    <---- these ones in particular.

    I do agree that human life in itself is a gift from God and it is so intense to think about. I do not deny the importance of God's hand in many other aspects of life. I did hope this was an appropriate thing to discuss as many of us get ready to plant those gardens and may have seeds started already.

    Wow, it is definitely something to meditate on how a small seed can become a plant that feeds us. God brings the sun (and hopefully the rain!) but it is up to us to tend to it as it has been from the very beginning.

    Remember that we are His stewards, and it's up to us to be responsible with the land and the blessings He gave us. Take care of those crops, critters, and children!

    I always smile as I have to admit it's like God knows when I am having a bad day. The sun comes out to hang clothes on the line, or a hummingbird appears for the first time in the year looking for food (they were my Grandmother's favorite animal). It's a good reminder to be thankful for everything- the smallest flower can be a good reminder that He gave us fertile land.

    I don't see why it wouldn't be. We can barely keep our discussion to plants half the time. ;-)

    I have my best conversations with the Lord while I'm out working in the garden.

    All good things are from God, and He is good all the time.

    I like to think that even in bad times there is something to be thankful to God for, I'm not always successful at this, but a good day in the garden where all the good things God gives is super abundant definitely makes me lift a grateful heart to Him.

    Every living thing is so wondrous and complex and perfectly designed.
    From a seeds tiny sprout emerging, to all the life going on unseen in the soil, being in the garden is an opportunity for reflection and thinking on these good things.

    @thistlebloom, my ponies say, "Look, Duck, I made poo for your garden!!!" (They drop the "s".) They are VERY proud of themselves.

    Do yours say the same thing?
