It is spring and nature is about to burst forth after a long winter’s rest; time to start planning our gardens and containers, going through gardening books and nursery catalogs, visiting our local nursery for ideas and the latest new plants and seeds. Eventually we will get that tiller out to start preparing the soil to receive new plants and seeds. We take joy in planting and sowing our garden, anxiously watching each day to see if the plants are growing and awaiting that little sprout to pop out of the ground. We nurture their growth all summer in anticipation of God’s beautiful reward of our efforts.
This is a good time of the year to also cultivate our minds and sow new seeds of knowledge to engage and excite us. While visiting our CTK library or your local library to check out the gardening books available, why not pick out a book that will be a new challenge or a change of your reading preferences. Life should be a continuous process of learning new things and nurturing our minds. We might be surprised to see what special reward God has in store for us if we sow some new seeds.
2 Corinthians 9:6 “The point is this: the one who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the one who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.” ~ Joy Morris, Library Team
