It's March and things are about to be blooming! We are ordering seeds for our garden and planting them this week. It makes me so excited to think about things blooming all over our little garden - and I do mean little! We have successfully planted a garden each year and successfully seen the weeds grow very, very tall. I'm looking forward to wandering outside with Daniel on warm summer mornings to pull up weeds and teach him how to garden. Who am I kidding? We will both be learning from youtube and Martha Stewart. But still! Doesn't that sound so nice?
For me it goes back to the "simple life" I feel called to live. Planting a garden and tending to it each day will teach me to endure. It will remind me that things grow with time. I want to slow down and anticipate small, but significant, growth. And I'm confident I can learn this lesson even if my gardening skills don't amount to much.

Start my day in the Word - It is so easy for me to fall out of habit reading the Word! You have heard me talk about this before but I'm being serious. If one part of my morning runs behind then I mindlessly skip my noisy journal time. It just changes my entire perspective when I start my day with the Bible.
