Soul breaks and spiritual growth gardening. It’s a great combination.
Yep, this is my backyard. And yes, I’m workin’ on it. It’s going to take time, sweat, and some creativity. Dang. Kinda like my life. It’s needs tending. Is that prophetic? Or is that pathetic? Actually both.
Spring is rushing into summer here on the Central Coast of California, and my spiritual garden needs revamping.
Here’s the latest yard maintenance stuff I’m using in the backyard. I haven’t even gotten to new plants yet. We’re at the rip out and prune stage, as well as weed whacking and getting some wood chips and weed prevention down.
My spiritual gardening is using some new tools too: passages of Scripture in new translations, mentoring books to read, and some major pruning taking place. Did I mention repentance in certain arenas? Ugg.
Oh fun! When the back lawn section is done, I’ve still got more to do!
My, my, my . . . . Now isn’t that prophetic!
What gardening are you embracing for spiritual growth this spring?
Have a great week, Susan
