God's Abundance

I learn something new about God every year...from my garden.

I put a few seeds in some dirt.  Add some water from time to time.  I don't worry.  Or fret.  Or stand by and watch.  Or dream about the seeds.  Or ask myself "how will this turn out?" or "what if there's not enough?"  

I simply sit by and wait.  I enjoy the sunshine as it warms and ripens the fruit that miraculously appeared.  I breathe the smell of the tomato plants deep into my lungs.  I wonder at the incredible size and weight of the plant...almost as tall as me when they were mere seeds just a couple of months ago!

And then, joy upon joy, I gather.  And each year, God provides more abundance than I could have even dreamed of.  It makes me glad that I don't get to decide how much the plant produces...I'd have far fewer tomatoes than I do now.

Today, I'll make the THIRD giant batch of salsa for the summer .  My fridge and freezer are full to overflowing.  

Not to mention my heart and soul...God is so sweet and good to me.

I'm so JEALOUS! We lost every single one of our tomatos to the blight that hit the NorthEast. We didn't get even a nibble. My freezer is almost empty :-(

Such a bummer! But yours look delicious!!
