Sowing, Watering and Reaping

Our leaves are truly unfurling so quickly! We've been through a busy two weeks here and sometimes I have not taken the time to look at those leaves two days in a row. Suddenly everything is looking SO green and lush! Yes, the weeds are coming up too, as we all know.

On Wednesday I went out and put some of our plants into the ground. Our South Carolina friends laugh at that, as their gardens are yielding already! I remember those days. Thursday and Friday mornings there was plenty of frost on the ground down in the low-lying areas though...thankfully not up at our altitude.

Today the plants are getting gently watered. Thank you, Lord. The rain makes these leaves look even greener.

Now it is time to go out into our little town. At our small Post Office I am called upon to sow seeds, water them, and maybe one day (perhaps today) to reap! My sweet hubby does this in one Post office, I in another. Christians do this continually. God is the one Who does the work in hearts. The battle is the Lord's. May we put on the whole armor of God and go in the Spirit's power. Believers are on the mission field. May we be walking, walking, walking; step by step in obedience to the Holy Spirit through this whole day; then start again tomorrow until God takes us home.

"Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man? I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase." I Cor. 3:5-7

May the Lord Jesus Christ, be magnified.
