This morning’s sermon was about miracles.
A reminder of those familiar Bible stories
And a challenge to think about miracles
In life today.
For gardeners this is not really a challenge.
We spend our time observing nature
Digging in the dirt
(Sorry Daddy – soil)
And watching what are for me
Who among us can turn this
Plant a seed or plant
and you end up with this…
It can’t possibly be what we do.
I for one, can’t even imagine how this happens
Yet it does.
Year after year.
Now there are weeds along the way.
This particular season it seems to be
Crab grass in my garden
And there are years when
Things don’t go as we hope and plan.
For instance it’s another year of limited hydrangea blooms.
But all in all
The miracles are there
We just have to stop
And open ourselves to see them
