Weeds

I love growing flowers in my yard and I have way too many.  You can ask my husband who helps me water.

I don’t love growing weeds.  And evidently, they do not need water.

Weeds remind me of trials, tribulations, problems, just the icky part of life that sometimes walks right in and makes itself at home.  No water needed, no fertilizer or particular soil.  

So when I saw these weeds the other day at the edge of the creek the Father reminded me of a simple truth.

Sometimes those weeds can become pretty flowers.

Sometimes those things in our lives that bring us pain, frustration, and trouble can turn into the most beautiful part of our life.

I had to stop and think about that for a minute.   

Sometimes those weeds end up being the favorite part of our yard.

And all along I thought it was just a weed.

Stop the Madness and Pass the Green Beans!

Stop the madness! 

Do you ever feel like you want to shout this from every street corner or closest mountaintop?  

I have felt this way.  In fact, I still feel this way.

I know…all will be well.  God is good.  All the time.  And I truly believe that.  Even in the midst of all the craziness called life.

But sometimes I just want to scream.

I am a crazy woman, as this picture would indicate.  I played “farm girl” yesterday at my Uncle’s house and picked some produce from his gardens.  The green beans are still cooking in the crock pot.

Yep…. crazy woman alright!

Life is not perfect.  I have circumstances to deal with like everyone else.  Someone actually indicated to me the other day that my life was perfect and I had it “altogether.”

Untrue.

I don’t have it altogether.  I worry.  I cry.  I yell.  I sometimes say inappropriate things.

Then when I am picking green beans off the vine the Father reminds me that He is the vine, and  I am the branch.  And that I am in Him and He is in me.  

John 15:1-8

And that I don’t have to have it altogether because He already does.

And that I cannot do this alone, on my own.  Jesus Christ is the only thing I can ever depend on.  Alcohol, drugs, friendships, jobs, money, roles, careers…none of these things will hold me up.  

I will only get through life with my Jesus. He is my vine. And I don’t do this alone.

How about you?
