Sowing Season

Spring is here in all it's glory.   The grass has turned green.  Tiny leaves are fresh on the trees.
Color and life emerges.

Seeds are planted in the soil, with promise of a harvest to come.

This seeding season on the farm reminds me that I am also in the season of sowing seeds into the hearts of my children.  

Each little seed I sow  holds hope for the future, whether it's the seed of deep conversation, loving correction, or extra special little surprises....I keep planting and praying that those seeds grow into something that is strong, with deep roots and plentiful fruit.   

Sowing seeds takes long hours, and hard work.   There is no putting off the work until later or cutting corners.    This short season will soon end.  The seeds must be carefully cleaned, sorted and free from weeds.  The soil must be prepared and fertilized.  The timing must be right.....but only God can transform and grow this tiny seed.  

Beneath the brown barren looking soil, lie the seeds of promise.   A new crop will soon emerge. 

"Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and who ever sows generously will also reap generously. "  2 Corinthians 9:6
