I just wanted to share some of the flowers we have growing. We love to plant, water and watch things grow. My fil is a master gardner so he has given us a lot of plants and flowers over the years. I like to say I am going shopping when I go to their house because he is always ready and willing to give me a clipping of something. It is really neat to see things come back every spring. The new growth after a cold winter is so wonderful to watch. It is as if we are watching the birth of a new season. While I love to plant I hate to weed. I not only hate to weed in the garden I hate to weed my life of all the yucky stuff that I let grow inside and around me. Sometimes when I see grass growing inside the flower beds I try to pull it out knowing I am only getting the surface and for a while the flowers will remain pretty but underneath the grass is just growing thicker and will eventually choke out the pretty flowers. So many times I just tackle things surface level in my life and then before I know it I am being choked by the growing stuff underneath. Father may I only let good grow in my life and not let the roots of bitterness, anger, unhealthy friendships and such determine who I am.
