I've got a thing for plants... I love them, love the way they soften up a place and how they need to be cared for and how they thrive. As soon as we got into the apartment, I rushed out for a container to put on our porch to fill with plants. I crave putting my hands in the dirt! Well, it is thriving and it loves great.... today the Lord reminded me how I am like that container.... crazy? He said that there were many types of plants in it, all working together create something pleasing to the owner. I'm that way, and He's placed a lot of unrelated things into my life right now, things that will grow into something pleasing to the owner... Him!

Personally, I kind of want a container with one plant, blooming and being all pretty. But He's decided to have lots of things in the container right now.... I'm not a guidance counselor right now. I'm not a Romanian missionary right now. Instead, I'm a lot of little plants that'll have to bloom into something beautiful.

Have you been talking to my husband?? This is exactly the analogy he gave me the other day about all the changes I have going on. Blooms don't appear nearly as quickly as we want though! There is no "Miracle Grow" for us though. It's in God's time!
