Sowing Seeds

We planted beans in the garden yesterday.

Little fingers carefully spacing the seeds just so.

Teamwork was needed to get all those seeds in the soil.

Seeds are planted, now they need water. 
Other seeds being planted in little hearts as the water soaks into the soil...

And tonight, ready or not, there will be even more little hands, feet, and hearts in the garden with us.  As we sow more vegetable seeds in the soil, we pray that the Lord provides us opportunity to sow seeds of His Love into these dear ones lives, as well.
This season as we cultivate a garden in our community, we will be teaching others the skill of gardening, growing healthy food for those who are in need and to share with our neighbors; but our main goal is to sow the seed of the gospel into as many hearts as we are able.  For that is what He has asked of us, and those are the seeds that will produce the best fruit.  So, as we sow, weed, water, and pray ... we leave the results to God who is able to bring even our feeble attempts at serving Him to a glorious harvest. 

Not to us, O LORD, not to us

but to your name be the glory,
because of your love and faithfulness.  Psalm 115:1

holy experience


  1. What a wonderful way to share God's love.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

    I found that the 99cent store has lots of bar laundry soaps. They have similar ingredients to Zote. They come in white, pink, and citrus. I use mine as a stain remover. It works wonders. I use it also for delicates and needlework.

    Have a wonderful day.

  2. I will be praying for your garden ministry. How exciting to see God's growth in so many ways. Thank you for your work with all who are involved.

    Thanks for your prayers for our family too!


  3. To God be the glory! What a wonderful thing to be involved in. Thank you for sharing this, it's encouraged me today.
