Shades of Gray from Grayson Co, TX #794 – WEIGHTED DOWN WITH SEED!

I am known as an impatient man. Waiting has never been one of my virtues.

At times I find myself much like this plant. So weighed down by the seeds of thoughts, dreams, ideas and desires.

A lot of the time I never allow the time for even one of my seeds to be planted and grow. While waiting for it to sprout, I plant another.

Can one think of their A.D.D. as a gift?

“The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.”   2 Corinthians 9:6

but,you do have to give the seed a chance to grow……monos en theos…..jim

Shades of Gray from Grayson Co, TX #780 – SIMPLICITY OF NATURE

“And I learned what is obvious to a child. That life is simply a collection of little lives, each lived one day at a time. That each day should be spent finding beauty in flowers and poetry and talking to animals. That a day spent with dreaming and sunsets and refreshing breezes cannot be bettered. But most of all, I learned that life is about sitting on benches next to ancient creeks with my hand on her knee and sometimes, on good days, for falling in love.”
― Nicholas Sparks

I am not a real Nicholas Sparks fan, but you wear what fits…..monos en theos…†…jim

Some days, I question what the hell am I planting ?

What am I growing?

Do I even produce fruit from which to be judged?

Sometimes it feels that the best option is to grow nothing and then, do you avoid being judged?

Peace out, Praying for a calm week and to at least prepare the soil. ††† en theos ††† jim

You just sometimes never know where your seeds may fall. This sunflower came up as a result of a stray seed from feeding the birds this winter. Feel as though it is a small return from my gift.

Then he told them many things in parables, saying: “A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. Whoever has ears, let them hear.” Matthew 13:3-9

Have faith that your seed will fall in the right soil on your journey†††nada te turbe†††jim

“Other seed fell on rocky ground, where it did not have much soil, and immediately it sprang up, since it had no depth of soil. And when the sun rose, it was scorched, and since it had no root, it withered away. Other seed fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked it, and it yielded no grain. And other seeds fell into good soil and produced grain, growing up and increasing and yielding thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold.” And he said, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”……………….Mark 4:5-9It is hard to prepare the soil after you have spouted.Grow where you are planted on your journey†††nada te turbe††††jim

It is hard to prepare the soil after you have spouted.
