Tending Growth

This year’s garden harvest consists of zucchini, tomatoes, peppers, blackberries, and peaches as well as bright, cheery flowers still blooming.

My gratitude overflows looking at the beauty and partaking of the bounty. It is indeed a feast, captured in this photo.

Looking at the picture of this wonderful harvest, memories come of some challenges in tending to its growth.

There was a time this year when the first planting of a particular crop didn’t take and had to be replanted. Weeding in the mornings of days reaching over 105 degrees, was draining. Pruning was sometimes prickly and hoeing caused a few blisters.

Tending to growth is not always an easy endeavor.

This summer’s bounty reminded me that during the season from seed to bloom when the labor of tending to growth becomes hard, in whatever the project, keeping in mind the harvest is a good thing.

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.–Galatians 6:9

“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”- 2 Timothy 2:7-
