I’ve said before that I’m observant.  Well I noticed today that the flowers around where I live have been swapped…you know for fall varieties…well I too noticed that I and the flowers have a bit in common.  Yep, it’s official. I’m a transplant!

Now to the untrained eye, you might not even notice the difference, but I guess you could say I have a semi-green thumb so I did….either that or I’m just a nerd…I’m betting on a bit of both but whatever.

Either way, I noticed that the plants were thriving despite the process I knew they had to go through to get there.

It made me think about the many flowers I killed back in AR before I had a clue….

Hey when I purchased my first home, I just wanted my yard to be pretty and I bought all these plants thinking,

“How hard could it be to replant plants?” e465d8c863616bcb86ae32db939b6aea

There were quite a few things that I had not considered that I have been sort of forced to in my right now…I did not handle them with care and I was pretty negligent in the beginning with maintenance.  The process was a lot slower than I wanted it to be because the new roots had to be established before they were able to thrive in the new environment.

It really blessed me this morning for God to speak to my heart in this way!  I knew that He was letting me know that this process that seemed to take forever would be worth the wait.  He reminded me that though there were days that I’ve felt weak and probably looked the same that I needn’t worry about dying here…that He is the Master Gardener and that He is taking His time to ensure that strong roots are established for the plans He has in store for me.
