If only...

My son Joshua said I should have a plant hospital. People are always bringing me their half dead plants as a last resort because they can't toss them.

I don't know why they thrive with me. I don't do anything special. I tell them as I repot them that it's their last chance. I cut off all the dead area and some of the leggy stuff. I put them outside next to a healthy plant and say, "Look at your sister here, how healthy she is. Don't you want to be just like that?"

I give them a good watering and leave them alone. It takes a month to 6 weeks to really see what they will choose, new life or.... Inevitably they choose new life. Some will even flower in thanks. And I do thank them.

If only Steven were a plant. But he is in a way God's plant isn't he?

  1. Steve is like a plant...and guess who is the gardener! This sounds an awful lot like what God does for all of us :)

    Have a GREAT weekend!
